Why School Therapy

For School Therapists

The school therapy program we offer is far from those typically offered by most staffing companies. While there is no 'standard day' for a travel therapist working in a school setting, the benefits and opportunities that Med Travelers offers does go far beyond the standard agency approach.

When you partner with us, you aren’t merely getting a travel therapist job, you’re getting a top-notch team dedicated to supporting you before, during and after your assignment ends. You're getting a highly-competitive benefits package, full retirement options, and even holidays off!

So, who's ready for school?!

Opportunities Abound

At Med Travelers, our school therapy program was specifically designed for therapists with a desire to work and become an integral part of a school setting. We work with a diverse set of public schools, private organizations, and special education systems so you can sharpen your skills within the best setting possible. With a robust support system and guidance from experienced professionals, you'll be able to make a real difference and keep your focus exactly where it belongs - on the kiddos!

So Many Benefits

School-based therapy jobs provide some amazing benefits. You're able to work with kids, challenge yourself and your skills and enjoy a flexible work environment. But it doesn't end there. School travel therapy jobs add even more benefits to the mix:

  • Day One Medical, Dental, and Vision as well as Professional and General Liability Coverage.
  • Full 401(k) retirement package.
  • Built-in time off and natural breaks that come with school calendars. 
  • Company-paid Life Insurance means more money in your pocket each month.
  • Longer contracts with low client cancellation rates.
  • We cover your state licensure fees, and can help with all the paperwork that goes along with it.
  • Access to your own personal recruiter, as well as 24/7 support while on assignment.

Great Pay

The amazing thing about a school travel therapy job is that the positions pay very well and you can take advantage of included housing while you're on assignment. This tends to be the case for PT, OT and SLPs who opt for travel positions over traditional permanent jobs. School-based therapists can expect to earn between $1,500-$1,900/week depending on specialty and education.

Local School Therapy Contracts

As a Travel Therapist or contractor with Med Travelers, you have the option to take on a local or national travel assignment within a school setting. The perks for both are the same except with local contracts you stay closer to home. Many SLP, CF, OT or PT contracts last for the duration of the school year (around 9 months), though there are some exceptions. 

With so many perks, you can see why School Therapy jobs are in super high demand. So dont wait! Get into this growing field now so you can build on your skillset and position yourself for the best opportunities while this market continues to expand.
