We see sound clinical education as both our professional responsibility and our opportunity to give back by helping students become passionate and capable therapists. Our goal is to inspire our student therapists to become experts in working with seniors, helping them to
Maintain their independence
Stay safely in their homes
Live with dignity and purpose

EmpowerMe has affiliations with numerous colleges and universities to help develop student therapists into superior senior healthcare practitioners. We offer clinical internships for PT, PTA, OT, OTA, and SLP in many EmpowerMe communities across the country. In addition, our clinical and operational mentoring support for newly graduated therapists is second to none. Having a talented and dedicated personal mentor helps new therapists assimilate quickly and accelerates their development.

After Graduation

Post-graduation, those who embark on a career path with us can expect. . .

Dedicated Mentorship Opportunities

Newly graduated therapists receive extensive clinical and operational support from our team members. Having a dedicated mentor will help you as both a clinician and a professional. Whether it’s to bounce a new treatment idea off of someone, figure out how to document more effectively, or discuss your career path, your mentor will be there for you.

Productivity Standards Support Professional Growth

Our productivity standard is among the lowest in the industry, as we expect our therapists to spend time with the residents outside of traditional billed treatments. This may include teaching an exercise class, educating a group of caregivers, participating in activities with residents, or even researching a new disease.

As a new therapist, it is important to have time to develop your craft. You will find our expectations align with our culture - we have a serious commitment to your professional growth.
