Working in travel therapy
At any given time, a healthcare facility may have PT jobs and OT jobs available due to extended absences and leaves, census fluctuation, staffing training, or any situation that results in a staffing gap which needs to be filled.

As a travel therapist, you’ll work on a contract basis for your healthcare staffing agency, Aureus Medical, generally from 13 to 26 weeks, sometimes more. Once your travel therapy assignment is finished you’ll begin your next one or you may decide to take some time off in between contracts.

The qualities of a travel therapist
Those who are most successful in travel therapy are skilled, confident, flexible, and able to immediately contribute once on assignment. Above all, a travel therapist is dedicated to providing high quality care and puts the well-being of the patient first.

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

Housing, travel, and benefits
Aureus Medical covers the cost of travel to the assignment location and offers options for housing. We also provide an outstanding benefits package, including insurance, 401K, vacation pay, tuition reimbursement, and much more!

Personal and professional growth
Working in travel therapy, you’ll live as you would as a local member of the community and fully experience all that the destination offers. It’s an extended vacation like no other. Travel physical therapy jobs and travel occupational therapist jobs also offer an ideal way for you to chart your own course according to your personal and professional goals. Broaden your experience and learn new techniques. Meet new people. Or, choose an assignment that’s close to friends and family.
