PT Settings in Michigan
If you want to try different settings, locations, clinical teams, productivity levels, or patient populations before you settle down while being totally financially secure, travel physical therapy is the perfect option for you. Through 13-week travel assignments, you can try different settings in locations across the country, the same setting in different facilities, or extend at one you love.
This professional flexibility will give you the room to you to find your calling without sacrificing your personal goals or sense of comfort and security. A few of the settings you can try out in Michigan or elsewhere in the country with Advanced Travel Therapy include:
Home Health Agencies
Long Term Care Facilities
Acute Care Facilities
Skilled Nursing Facilities
During a home health assignment a PT will treat patients in their places of residence. This setting does lack larger facilities and teams which new grads may find daunting at first. Home health, however, does teach PTs who are starting out a great deal about independence, confidence, and personal patient care very quickly. Many new grads also appreciate the diversity of patient populations and diagnoses they treat on these assignments.

Living In Michigan
The State of Michigan is an underrated destination. It is incredibly diverse and beautiful. The natural wonders are endless: Beaches, sand dunes, forests, and lakes galore. Split into two peninsulas by the Straits of Mackinac, the geography is unique and enthralling. A number of the outdoor sites you may want to visit while you’re on assignment include:
- Isle Royal National Park
- Pictured Rocks National Seashore, Lake Superior
- Oval Beach
- Mackinac Island
- Yellow Dog Falls
- Old Mission Peninsula Wineries
Considering that’s only a fraction of the list, you can imagine the fun you can have in the Great Lake State. So if you’re a PT who wants to seek thrills on time off, you won’t have trouble finding places to hike, camp, kayak, ski, fish, or skydive while traveling in Michigan.
If you are more urbanite, Michigan still has plenty to offer. Great American cities like Lansing, Frankenmuth, Kalamazoo, South Haven, and Detroit, have countless food, music, art, shopping, and art venues to explore.
Here’s a list of a few must-see city attractions:
- Ann Arbor
- Windmill Island
- Colonial Michilimackinac
