This site was created as an educational resource to help physical therapy professionals transition out of patient care in creative ways. Non-clinical jobs for PTs (and all therapy professionals, really!) are out there, and my goal is to give you the tools you need in order to land them!
This site is here to serve you. Feedback is welcome. *Please* reach out and tell me what you want out of this site, and I’ll try to make it happen. Collaboration is encouraged, too! I would love for this site to become a platform for people to connect and share ideas 🙂
As for me, I’m Meredith Castin, PT, DPT. I graduated from University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (San Marcos) in April, 2010. By the time I had been working for 3 years, I had burned out on patient care.
By the time I had been working for 5 years, I left patient care altogether to pursue a non-clinical career. It has been a long road for me, and it has not been an easy transition. I want to make the transition easier for others, though. That’s why I created this site.
I am passionate about fighting the physical therapy burnout crisis in our profession, and I believe that creating non-clinical options in our profession will enable PTs to have more satisfaction in their careers. It’s time that we shatter the stigma of leaving patient care and embrace the idea of leveraging our degrees. Patient care is not for everyone, at least not for the entire duration of their careers.
Thank you for stopping by, and please follow The Non-Clinical PT on Facebook for updates!
