As one of the largest healthcare staffing firms in the country, we help healthcare professionals take their medical careers to new heights. Our specialties include travel physical therapy, travel occupational therapy, travel speech therapy, travel respiratory therapy, and other areas of allied health.

Work, for example, as a travel PT and we’ll connect you to assignments nationwide on a contract basis. Travel physical therapy jobs are generally 13 to 26 weeks in duration, sometimes more. A travel physical therapist is a vital member of the healthcare team - filling gaps due to vacations, medical leaves, staff training, extended absences, or during peak seasons. A successful travel physical therapist is one who is not only skilled but also flexible and able to immediately contribute once on assignment.

Travel therapy jobs offer an ideal way for a travel PT, travel OT, or others in mobile healthcare careers to chart their own courses according their personal and professional goals. A travel physical therapy professional may choose assignments with their career aspirations in mind – as a way to broaden their experience or learn new techniques. Some working in the travel therapy field are driven by their love for travel, exploring new areas of the country, and connecting with friends and family.

You’ll work closely with an experienced recruiter whose healthcare staffing specialty is travel therapy. Your recruiter is your point of contact before, during, and after your contract to ensure your travel PT, travel OT, travel speech therapy, or travel respiratory therapy assignment is going smoothly. Your recruiter will also look ahead to future assignments based on where you want to go next.

Aureus Medical covers the cost of travel to the location and private housing complete with all the furnishings to make sure you’re comfortable in your home away from home. Working as a travel physical therapist or in another travel healthcare career, you’ll live as you would a local member of the community and fully experience all that the destination offers. It’s an extended vacation like no other.

Take the step toward a rewarding and exciting career! We have travel physical therapy jobs and opportunities in other travel therapy fields available nationwide!
