Licensing for Travel Allied Health Professionals
If you’re interested in becoming a travel allied health professional, you need to obtain the proper licensing or certification for each state you practice in.
Some allied health specialties have multi-state compacts that allow you to practice with the same license in states that have adopted legislation. For example, there is a Physical Therapy compact which allows physical therapists and physical therapist assistants to practice in multiple states. Speech language pathologists may also get a multi-state license through the Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology compact.
For other specialties or for professionals who want to practice in states that haven’t adopted compact legislation, you will typically need to transfer your license to practice to each state. Many states have reciprocity for other state licensure. Transferring your allied health license depends on each state and different states may have different requirements.
Our team at AHS MedStat is here to help guide you through the process for the licensing and credentials you need for each assignment. We can help with everything from helping you set up courses you need for compliance to helping you keep track of all your necessary documents and paperwork. Whatever you need, we are here for you.
We work with you to find assignments that meet your needs and also offer guidance to help you further your allied health career. If you have certain destinations you’re dying to visit, we can help you obtain licensure ahead of time, so you’re prepared when the perfect opportunity arises. It’s just one way we make a difference for you.
