Development Programs

ATI Academy

The ATI Academy is ATI’s Learning and Development division, centered around a holistic approach that encompasses clinical development along with leadership and professional growth. This includes Pathways Programs that ensure growth and preparation to take on what’s next in your career.

Clinical Pathways for Early Clinicians

Clinical Pathways is designed for the needs of new graduates at the beginning of their career journeys. Cohorts run multiple times per year, and participants are immersed in a rich onboarding program for 12-18 months designed to bridge the transition from novice PT student to effective, confident clinical professional who can predictably deliver the best results and outcomes for patients. Pathways clinicians will be assigned to one of ATI's growth locations, and upon graduation may request a transfer to any open Physical Therapist position across our vast national footprint.

Licensed Pathways clinicians are paid and work as full-time physical therapists, and participate across all levels of ATI's total rewards program, including best-in-class benefits, competitive full-time salary, and ATI's Clinician Incentive Program. Relocation assistance is also provided for this program.

Unique to Pathways, clinicians also receive ongoing development support throughout assignments (including Grand Rounds) and continual consultation with ATI's internal experts to expand their clinical toolkits and effectiveness.
