Resources for the Traveling Therapist

Share

I’m discovering how new the idea of being a traveling therapist really is because there really isn’t much out there on the web regarding this profession. That’s what we here at Rehab and Therapy Jobs.com are trying to fix. Any and all information we can find that will help you in your careers we will post and today I found a couple things.

19190911There is a blog site written by a current traveling therapist and it is called, “The Ramblings of a Traveling Speech Therapist.” As the author describes it, “This blog will detail my travels and provide a contact point for all those who I meet along the way.” So take a minute or two to read about her travels. She has had some great experiences and some not so great, but that’s life ain’t it? You take the good, you take the bad and there you have… Hopefully I’m not dating myself with that little lyric but I probably am. Anyways, read some of her posts – she gives great insight as to what you can and cannot expect on your traveling therapy job.

The next site I discovered that can help you with your career as a traveling therapist is MedTravelerClub.com. This site is dedicated to providing prospective and current traveling therapists a place to share information regarding staffing agencies, interviewing, locations, etc… There is also a great page of links to associations, certifications and so forth. There is also a forum to share your stories and experiences with other current and past travelers. This would be a great way to find out about a location you’re thinking about or perhaps just making friends to meet out while on assignment. So check it out!

As I said, there isn’t much out there for you travelers yet, but we’re working on it so check back and we’ll keep you informed!

About the Author

Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I’ve been involved with Marketing and Advertising for the better part of a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she’s ever had. So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. Obviously, I landed the job at Medical Solutions, a travel physical therapy company and am now a Marketing Specialist who writes about travel physical therapy. This by far has been a major blessing to my life, I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time, as long as they’ll have me. Now that we’ve got the career timeline out of the way. Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I’ve been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn’t at least kick the ball around, I don’t know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts. Music, Visual arts, Film, Design; pretty much anything and everything arty. I’m happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager!
