Re: Physical Therapist RPT position
I am applying for the Registered Physical Therapist position advertised in last Sunday's San Jose Mercury. I am an RPT with 10+ years of physical therapy experience and am looking for a new opportunity in physical therapy, having recently relocated to the Bay Area from Southern California.
My PT education, licensing and certification qualifications I believe meets or exceeds your requirements:
My most recent physical therapist assignment was in an 80 bed acute care hospital caring for a diverse set of patients, from children to geriatric. I conducted needs assessments of my patients' rehabilitative requirements, evaluating muscle, neurological, skeletal problems. Through direct therapy I helped my patients restore function and prevent or improve disabilities from surgery, disease or injury. For me, nothing is more rewarding than helping a patient overcome dysfunction after a health impairment.
- Current California Registered Physical Therapist license
- 10+ years experience as a registered physical therapist
- Masters degree in Physical Therapy from an APTA-approved school of physical therapy
- BLS/CPR certifications
- Bilingual English/Spanish (which has proved highly beneficial in California clinical settings)
PT training and supervision, in my mind, is an important job of the physical therapist. In my current RPT role I supervise two PT assistants, handling their daily scheduling. Additionally, I've provided training in PT programs for nurses, medical staff and patient family members. You will find I am a positive, enthusiastic partner with physicians and other members of the medical team enlisted in the charge of achieving high-quality, multidisciplinary patient care outcomes.
My attached resume provides additional detail on my accomplishments as a Registered Physical Therapist, including repeated performance evaluation ratings at the highest levels. I would welcome the chance to learn more about physical therapist career opportunities at US Health Works, and discuss my background with you in more detail.
