Ever think about visiting new places while getting paid? Travel Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants are in high demand. Go Healthcare Staffing has numerous placements available with competitive pay from coast to coast. Take your pick from our openings here. Now is a great time to consider a new adventure and start your journey as a traveler. Read on for more about traveling in the physical therapy field.

Attractive Pay Rates

As with any career, salaries and compensation can vary greatly by area. Add to that other variables associated with travel assignments (stipends, taxes, etc.) and the math gets a bit more complicated. However, our research suggests that a travel Physical Therapist can expect to make about 1.5 to 2 times as much-on average-compared to a therapist working a permanent position.

Greater flexibility

As a traveler, you can choose where and when you want to work. Take advantage of traditional 13-week assignments. Then take some time off to see the sites, visit friends. Or, consider seeking an extension. Either way, with a little bit of planning, you can be on the road to a work-life balance that best fits your needs.

Try Before You Buy

Traveling is a wonderful way to try out settings and locations before settling down. You can experience different climates, geographies, cultures, and healthcare settings before embarking on a more traditional permanent position. Soak it all in and then make a truly educated decision.

Satisfy Your Sense of Adventure

Choosing where and how long to work someplace can be seen as a luxury. But, as a traveler, it’s all within reach. In fact, you can easily be within minutes of the most beautiful national parks, historic landmarks, and renowned museums. Start checking off your bucket list.

The ideal candidate for our traveler Physical Therapist assignments must have at least 2 years of experience, with active Therapist license and BLS and/or ACLS (if required) certified by the American Heart Association. Our team will help you navigate local state licensures.
