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.

$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.

Meet the Advanced Mentors
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!”

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!
Laura Morehouse, Occupational & Physical Therapist
Laura Morehouse comes to us by way of Rochester Hills, MI just outside of Detroit. She received her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at Michigan State University. Laura attended the University of St. Augustine in Florida and earned a dual degree in both Occupational and Physical Therapy. After graduation, she worked at a hospital and outpatient clinic in Starke, Fl. Since that time she has been traveling with Advanced Medical all throughout Pennsylvania. She is currently working in Home Health, but has also extensive experience in Skilled Nursing Facilities with Advanced Medical. Laura feels becoming a therapist was an easy decision for her. She has a twin sister who also chose a path as a therapist and they had always tended to do things “together”. After a semester internship at Michigan State, Laura realized she really enjoyed both fields of study and found the dual degree program at St. Augustine. Laura loves being a therapist and calls her sister for advice often (and vice versa).

Jen is an outdoor fanatic who loves hiking, running, and as befits a Californian-anything beach-related, including paddling and surfing. She currently has licenses in California and Hawaii, with a pending in Massachusetts to practice in Boston this summer. Jen was drawn to travel therapy for the diverse clinical experiences and the enormous flexibility to see new places it offered. Her preferred setting is Pediatrics, although she has enjoyed her variety of experiences in other areas settings. Jen was a language major in College and has been able to utilize Spanish in California and German in Hawaii, while also learning some Japanese along her current Hawaiian adventure.
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.
