This site was created as an educational resource to help physical therapy professionals (all rehab professionals, really!) transition out of patient care in creative ways. Non-clinical jobs for PTs are out there, and my goal is to give you the tools you need in order to land them!
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 three years, I had burned out on patient care.
I set a goal to treat for five years before leaving patient care, and that’s exactly what I did. It was not an easy transition, but I’m now happily employed as a full-time copywriter. I run this site during my free time because I want to make your transition out of patient care easier than mine.
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.
The Non-Clinical PT 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!
Thank you for stopping by, and please follow The Non-Clinical PT on Facebook for updates!
