Each year, the Institute accepts approximately eight staff therapists. We schedule interviews for as many applicants as possible. Depending upon the number of applications we receive, we may not be able to offer a personal interview to all candidates meeting the minimum requirements. The Selection Committee makes all decisions about personal interviews and the selection of trainees; its decisions are final.
All written materials that you submit as part or in support of your application become the property of the Institute. If you are not selected, we’ll destroy all application materials except for letters of recommendation. TPI keeps letters of recommendation on file for three years.
