Transitioning to Travel Therapy

If you’ve been working as a speech, physical or occupational therapist for a few years you may be thinking of changing it up a bit and working as a contract therapist for a few months or even a few years – or perhaps make your full-time career that of the traveler. MedPro has a program which gives you the best of both worlds…..the security and benefits of working for an industry leader with the flexibility and excitement of working in different settings and facilities as you like.

Our clients engage us to find contract therapists because they have a serious need. They could be short-staffed. Someone could be on a long-term vacation. They could be anticipating an increase in census but can’t yet commit to hiring a therapist full time. There could be any number of reasons, but the most important one is that they need your skills.

Dealing with a variety of setting and patients will only help you increase your clinical proficiency. And give you the break you need from the same thing every day for months on end. It may not be for everyone but an increasing number of therapists are researching this option as a new career choice.

If you’re a physical, occupational or speech therapist with the itch to serve and the yen to do it in different settings around the country or close to home, then contact a recruiter at MedPro Healthcare Staffing. We look forward to hearing from you!
