PT Jobs: 51 Great Resources

PT Job Resources for Physical Therapy Job SeekersThe 51 Physical Therapy Resources page was built as a reference guide for physical therapy professionals and physical therapy job seekers. The following list of physical therapy links were broken down into eight categories and voted on by members of the Onward Healthcare staff with the help of our physical therapists.

When selecting our Top 51 PT Job Resources, we tried to pick those sites that would be most useful to physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, travel physical therapy job seekers, physical therapists, and physical therapy students. The links range from physical therapy informational sites, to PT blogs and social media sites, as well as national organizations and sections of the APTA.

If you have any ideas for additional physical therapy resources or links that would be useful to PTs or PTAs, please email us your suggestions for future revisions to this list.
