Maddie and Don dive into what travel therapy is and the current job market throughout the country. With COVID-19, the team has been creative to ensure interested therapists land a worthwhile travel contract. When traveling, therapists should consider these factors when considering travel PT such as licensing, housing, stipends, and pay packages.
Top reasons to a new grad should try travel PT:
- The experience
- Networking opportunities
- Variety of PT settings
- Mentorship program
- No long term commitment
- Building growth and confidence
