The First Step In Your Travel Therapy Adventure
If you’ve just graduated from college and you're unsure of what your next steps should be, then our industry-leading New Grad program is just the thing to kickstart your travel therapy career! We take talented graduates (like you) and place them into exciting travel therapy positions, all while providing amazing support and clinical mentorship. It's called the Travel Therapy New Grad Program.
Where do you picture yourself after college? Our New Grad network is nationwide, meaning you can work anywhere: From the Atlantic to the Pacific, the snow to the desert — work wherever your sense of adventure takes you.
13-week assignments give you the flexibility to work where you want, when you want. Get a feeling for different practices and places with assignments that work within whatever schedule you choose.
There's a reason travel therapy is so popular — free private housing, completion bonuses and tax-free living expenses on top of competitive wages makes your career choice a lucrative one.
Broaden your skill set by working in diverse communities and multiple facilities. From large hospitals in busy cities to smaller clinics in sleepy towns, you can choose your challenge and sharpen your skills.
$5,000 Tuition Reimbursement
What’s better than working in the career you love while getting paid to travel to exciting new places? Honestly, not much. But we may have found something: $5,000 in tax-free money to help defray your education costs. Just complete a set number of assignments in two years and the check is in the mail! Your recruiter will give you the details!
Free Continued Education Courses
Learning never ends, especially in the therapy world. That’s why we offer over 1000 continued education courses (with new courses added daily) for the first two years of your New Grad program, available 24/7, free. We should probably put that in bold: Free.
Never Travel Alone
Our Advanced Mentors are highly qualified and experienced travelers who are there to help you with invaluable clinical insight and all-around travel support. Every Advanced Mentor has been right where you are, so you'll never feel alone.
Meet the Advanced Mentors
Courtney McClean, Physical Therapist
Growing up in Bridgton, a small resort town in eastern Maine, Courtney went on to get her undergraduate and doctorate degree in New Haven, Connecticut at Quinnipiac University. Boasting a classically New England style campus with handsomely manicured lawns, Quinnipiac is a mid-sized liberal arts university with a strong DPT program. As someone who is “active on my feet” in her words, Courtney was drawn to the thrilling diversity of travel therapy. A lover of virtually anything outdoors, Courtney especially embraces hiking and a passion for the ocean. Her assertive nature and sharp clinical skills have made Courtney an elite traveler who is anxious to mentor young therapists. Although Courtney enjoys all settings, her dream practice would be working in Pediatric Neuro Rehabilitation utilizing Hippotherapy (utilizing a horses movement to affect change in the patient). Courtney has shined in a variety of settings and scenery, with licenses in California, Arizona, Texas, and New York. Her recruiter raves about her versatility and willingness to adapt to her surroundings.
Lynann Pfister, Physical Therapist
Lynann Pfister is talented physical therapist that hails from Franklin, WI. Split in half by the Root River, Franklin sits just outside Milwaukee and has been named as a “top place to live”, by Money Magazine. At age 14, Lynann suffered a sprained ankle. The ensuing rehabilitation process was overwhelmingly positive and lit a fuse that eventually resulted in a career as a physical therapist. For her educational career Lynann decided to stay in the badger state, earning her DPT from Carroll University. Carroll is a small Presbyterian school that used to be known as Carroll College until it was incorporated as a university in 2009. Famous alumni include Fred MacMurray of My Three Sons fame. Lynann originally was drawn into travel therapy with a preferred role in outpatient settings, but quickly craved the opportunity to diversify her experiences. Since then, Lynann has become a true “jack of all trades”, working in outpatient ortho, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing facilities, and acute settings. Her Advanced Medical recruiter states: “Lynann came to us as a new grad PT, watching her grow over the past 3 years has been so much fun. I love working with her because she is sincere and dedicated to her profession and to me, displays what a real leader is!”
Alyson Price, Physical Therapist
As a Type A personality you would think Alyson is the last person to embrace and thrive as a traveling therapist. This outlook would be wrong, as Alyson loves the ability to only plan for 13 weeks at a time. Alyson grew up in Aransas Pass, TX, a small coastal town known for its beautiful harbor and large hummingbird population. Gaining a biology degree from Howard Payne University, Alyson went on to obtain her DPT from Texas Tech. Emphasizing modern technology and evidence-based practice, the Texas Tech DPT program boasts 4 clinical research laboratories. An outdoor fanatic, Alyson is obsessed with finding new cities on Pinterest to someday visit/live and check off the “top” things to do or see. Alyson came to travel therapy more informed than most, as her cousin was a traveling RN who spun great stories from her time on the road as Alyson was starting PT school. Preferring the acute setting, Alyson loves the ability to be the first line of contact for those whose lives have been turned upside down. She is licensed in Georgia and Texas but her travels do not end there. Alyson has a cousin who lives overseas that she makes time to visit after every couple assignments, leading to adventures in Japan and England. She loves traveling with Advanced Medical because of their superior dependability and loyalty. As she says: “Teamwork makes the Dream work!”
Tiffany is from the small town of McLemorsville, TN. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Exercise Science and Wellness from The University of Tennessee and went on to achieve her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Spalding University in Louisville, KY. Prior to beginning OT school, she knew she wanted to embark on her career as a travel therapist with the ability to work in a variety of settings and getting the chance to see the country. With 2 years under her belt, Tiffany has traveled throughout Texas working in the settings of Skilled Nursing and Home health. She hopes to assist new grads to take on travel therapy with an open mind while assisting them to transition into the role of a travel therapy.
Kayla Layner, Occupational Therapist
Kayla grew up in the small town of Parkersburg, West Virginia before becoming a Mountaineer at West Virginia University where she received a bachelor’s degree as well as her master’s in Occupational Therapy. While at WVU, Kayla had the opportunity to work with the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health completing rat-model research on muscle injury, exercise and neuromuscular diseases where she was able to present at conferences at the national level. After discussing travel with fellow mentor Aliza Krug, she was eager to expand her therapy toolbox through experiencing a variety of settings, diagnoses, and groups of people all while exposing herself to new areas of the country. Kayla is licensed in WV, VA, and NC with experience in SNF, ALF, Acute, and LTC. She is a passionate OT who loves to share her experiences with others and hopes to be a positive resource to fellow new grad travelers!
Kelsey Besler, Speech-Language Pathologist
Kelsey is a long time Advanced Medical traveler, having completed assignments in NC, FL, and TX. Her entire life, she knew she wanted to be a speech therapist, having dealt with speech impediments first hand as a child. Kelsey travels for the adventure and enjoys meeting many new people with every placement. While on the road, she has gained clinical experience as well as life experience, and plans on traveling until she finds the perfect place to settle down. There are many aspects of travel that Kelsey loves, but mostly she enjoys the rewarding experience of helping others all over the country. As a mentor, Kelsey hopes to expand her her reach by helping new grads have the best first travel experience possible. Kelsey’s sister is a new grad SLP, so Kelsey will enjoy mentoring her as well!
