Be Heard. Be Valued. Be Recognized. Be Proud.

Be Your Professional Best!

You are a hard working, team player, who wants the best for their patients. You’ve reached a point in your career where you realize that you can reach and impact even more patients through facilitating the professional development of other physical therapists, both experienced and newer graduates.

You’ve also come to realize that there is more to patient care than just clinical competence and even expertise. You have a passion for the softer skills around communication, empathy and gaining patient buy-in to their plans of care so that they will achieve their goals in the best, most efficient way possible. And you have a desire to learn more and teach others about this.

We are a team of outstanding physical therapists who are committed to our patients and to each other. We believe management’s role is to not simply hold people accountable, but to support, coach and foster the success and professional growth of every team member. We believe the coach is only successful when the team is.

We stick by our Core Values, which are outlined below. They are not just a list we put in a frame on the wall. We live them and hold each other to them. They guide our behaviors and decision making each and every day.

Our benefits are great too. There's a con-ed allowance, formal clinical mentoring program (which you will lead), APTA dues, health, vision, dental, holidays, commuter benefit for public transit, and 25 days paid time off each year.

We have an established Orthopaedic Clinical Residency Program in conjunction with EIM to make it truly manageable and focus on the clinical decision making, communication and professional development of our clinical residents. This is the program you will be coordinating and helping us grow.

Our Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Residents give back to the community through workshops, volunteering, talks at local organizations and most recently through Facebook Live educational videos. Our PT lecture series brings in experts from around the globe (literally) and is open to PTs and healthcare providers throughout the Bay Area.

We have built an environment that allows you to learn and practice at the top of your game, emphasizing great clinical care, and patient & provider communication.  

You will love being part of our team if you love working hard, caring deeply for your patients and want to work on a truly collaborative team. We don't have room for giant egos or passengers. Everyone contributes and pulls their weight and helps the other members of the team as much as they can whether it's in their job description or not. We believe that nothing is "not my job".
