The Ins and Outs of Travel Physical Therapy
I have always been interested in traveling after my schooling is through, but there always seems to be so much thought that needs to go into planning a big trip. Will I have saved up enough finances to not only travel, but also to support myself once I finish my travel journey? Will I have enough money to stay in nice hotels, enrich myself in the cuisine of these new places, and do any planned tours, etc.? Then I started doing some research on opportunities through my work that can allow me the freedom and flexibility to travel. Become a travel PT? I don’t see why not!
I reached out to Point of View Travel PT on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their journey. This couple has taken full advantage of the benefits of a travel PT job and have shared with me all of the incredible details. Continue reading to hear from Tori and Devin:
“We are Tori and Devin, we have been traveling PTs for over 4 years. We are from New Jersey and have taken travel assignments in Arizona, Maine, South Carolina, Massachusetts (2x), California (2x), Washington and Colorado! So far, our travel assignments have been in either home health or outpatient settings. Travel assignments can last from 13 weeks up to 1 year. You only commit to 13 weeks at a time so you can travel as little or as long as you’d like. We pick everywhere we go and interview with the management at the clinic before accepting each position to make sure it is a good fit! We are able to save more money as travelers because our travel company provides us with daily housing and food stipends while on assignment. We said we’d travel 1-2 years starting out, that was 4 years ago and we have no end in sight because this lifestyle is just too good!”
I am definitely interested in travel PT after hearing about Tori and Devin’s experiences.
