Requirements and Responsibilities
The essential functions of Physical Therapists vary from position to position but most commonly include conducting initial evaluations which includes reviewing medical history, interpreting referral information, performing an examination of the patient, documenting patient concerns and providing physical therapy treatment to patients. Additionally a Physical Therapist taking on a travel therapy job in California may be expected to discuss treatment plans and monitor patient progress. A valid California Physical Therapist license will be required for California PT Travel Jobs but Advanced Medical can assist in securing this. Other than the license, strong manual therapy skills are often considered the most important ability to have as it allows you to effectively assist patients in performing the functional tasks and therapeutic exercises required in Physical Therapy. Depending on the facility type you may be working closely with physicians and other medical personnel which will require interpersonal and communication skills to work alongside.

I was referred to Advanced by another traveler in my building that worked for them. She kept telling me that they really do customize packages and pay top rates so I called them and that is exactly what they did.Nancy P.
