Job Description

Part Time Outpatient Orthopedic Physical Therapist Wanted!

Experience the power of physical therapy with NovaCare in Fort Washington! 

NovaCare in Fort Washington is seeking a steady part time physical therapist for our outpatient team. We have a sister center in Waldorf Maryland that may need coverage. Initial estimate 2-3 days per week with at least one day treating until 7pm. Your last patient is scheduled an hour prior.

We treat a mix of general orthopedics, industrial and sports medicine conditions. An ideal PT has at least one (1) year of recent experience in an OP ortho setting. We are OK to consider new graduates, but you must be comfortable as the only PT on site at times. Our centers open as early as 7am closing at 7pm with last patient scheduled an hour prior.

We have 60 minute evals and 45 minute treatment times. We are seeking a dependable, experienced and flexible licensed PT.

This would be hourly paid position with the ability to participate in locally hosted CEU accrediting courses. We DO expect this opportunity to grow into full time hours (32hr+) soon.
