Tips from Aureus Medical on how to make the most of your travel physical therapy jobs

Omaha, NE (February 16, 2015) - If you're new to your travel therapy job, follow these tips from Aureus Medical Group, a nationwide leader in healthcare staffing, to make the most of your experience:

Come up with a list of questions
Instead of learning about your job as you go, make sure to ask plenty of questions before you even get there. Create a list of questions of all the things you're wondering about before you leave for your travel therapy job. Maybe you want to know how long your assignment is, what you have to bring, how many patients you'll be working with, etc. It never hurts to be prepared.

Have an open mind
You may really want to travel to California, but you should consider traveling to destinations that aren't necessarily on your bucket list. A physical therapy job could take you to a location you never expected, and you may even end up enjoying it more than you imagined. Keep an open mind about travel.

Don't just have an open mind about your travel therapy destinations, be open to meeting new people, learning about different cultures, and trying various methods of therapy as well.

Do your research
Before you head to a location, take a bit of time to research certain amenities and attractions. This way, when you have a bit of time away from your traveling therapy duties, you'll have an idea of where you can go to spend your free time. After all, if you have to be in a certain city, why not make the most of it by exploring all that you can? Planning certain activities can help you enjoy your time to the fullest when you're off-duty.
