Most PT’s are unaware of the many non-clinical careers are available to the field. This is a great primer to the non-clinical jobs that may be a good fit for your skills.
Meredith Castin DPT is an “outside-the-box” PT who works with clinicians across the country to prepare them for non-traditional roles in the field of physical therapy.
Her blog The Non-Clinical PT discusses at length the great scope and variety of professional careers that PT’s (and any allied health care provider) can work towards.
Not everyone is cut out to be a high-volume therapist. Sometimes it’s not that you don’t love the field of PT, it’s just that you don’t feel like you are using your skill-set to the best of your ability.
The Non-Clinical PT highlights practitioners who have transitioned out of direct patient care and are now in a variety of fields from clinical analyst, to writer, to entrepreneur.
In this podcast, we go over just a few of the many options that PT’s have and talk about how to avoid burnout as a practicing clinician.
In addition to writing, Meredith offers 1-on-1 career coaching and is preparing to launch a course to help PT’s find the career of their dreams.
