Junior Physical Therapist

Our promise to you is to help you be your professional best.

You may be a new graduate or a newer physical therapist, and you are a hard working, team player, who wants the best for their patients. You’re looking for a place where you can learn, grow and practice the way you envisioned from your first exposure to physical therapy.

You are eager to learn and continue your professional development in a formal mentorship program. You believe there is more to patient care than just clinical competence and even expertise. You have a burning desire to work on connecting with patients, as well as your clinical skills.

We are a team who are committed to our patients and to each other. We believe management’s role is 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.

You’ll be happy to know that our benefits are great too. We offer a generous continuing education allowance, a formal clinical mentorship program, APTA dues reimbursement, health, vision, dental, (8 paid) holidays, commuter benefit for public transit, and 25 days paid time off (PTO) each year.

We 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’re proud of the practice we’ve built and hope you will join us to learn, grow, and practice at the top of your game.  

You will love being part of our team if you love learning, caring deeply for your patients, and want to work on a truly collaborative team.
