The Complete Guide to Launching Your Non-Clinical Career
Feeling burned out is normal. Wanting a change is OK.
But going non-clinical has its challenges....
🤷 Worrying that you have no marketable skills.
😬 Feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed with inaction.
😫 Struggling to find jobs that don’t result in a pay cut.
😑 Hitting dead ends looking for non-clinical jobs.
😫 Failing to start since you have no idea what you want to do.
😰 Deciding you're too old––or too young––to make the move.
💸 Spending tons on coaches and resume writers with no results.
📑 Sending out dozens of resumes and hearing NOTHING.
🤦♀️ Determining that no raise is better than no job.
😓 Skipping lunch and staying late to catch up on paperwork.
🥱 Being too tired at night to research careers or take classes.
😔 Giving up altogether. Resigning yourself to a life of unrealistic productivity, no pee breaks, no raises, no growth, and no respect.
I worked with hiring managers, career coaches, and non-clinical PT/OT/SLP professionals to crack the code of going non-clinical—and I put it all into one comprehensive course.

"Non-Clinical 101 is extremely thorough and well structured. There is valuable information and development for any person, no matter where they want their career to take them. Meredith herself is an encouraging mentor. She referred me to my current role, which is a perfect fit in every way. I was able to highlight my passions, skills, and prior travel experience to apply for my current position, which is remote and innovative in nature. Meredith reassured me that my aspirations were achievable and helped outline a way to reach them. I can’t recommend her course and expertise enough!”

"Non-Clinical 101 was so awesome! I took it very seriously and spent time doing the self-reflections and personality tests, which were so revealing. I really, really loved the love/hate/easy/hard task. It made me think about things in a new light besides like/dislike. I also liked doing the visualizations because it really got me in touch with what I want out of a career and what is important to me."
- Emily K, Client Success Manager
"I was just offered a job today...I took Non-Clinical 101, which was affordable and informative. It helped me tailor my resume and I got the job. I'm excited!"
"I am thrilled with the role I landed. The pay is actually better than what I was making in outpatient private practice! I used the sections on resume/cover letter writing, interviewing, negotiating in real time as I went through the process and went back several times to re-listen. I know that I would not have had the courage to apply to a position like this without this course."
"I had gotten pretty down on myself for not sticking with PT. I can't thank you enough for giving me the confidence and the message I needed at just the right time to move forward. I can say with a good amount of certainty that I would not be in this position without your help. I feel lucky to have the option for remote work now."
- Ryan O, Program Manager
"The course is thorough. If someone applies this information, they will have no trouble getting a non-clinical position."

Hi! I'm an entrepreneur, career strategist, freelance writer/editor, former clinical rehab liaison, and the creator of The Non-Clinical PT!
I developed Non-Clinical 101 because I was tired of seeing PT, OT, and SLP professionals struggle to transition out of patient care. After working in the non-clinical space for nearly five years, I created a 4-step course that guides you through the process of launching your non-clinical career! Learn more about me.
"I just landed a job as a rehab liaison for a huge hospital with a 50-60 bed rehab unit! I cannot tell you how helpful Non-Clinical 101 was to me, and I cannot thank you enough!"
"Non-Clinical 101 has expanded what I thought was possible, and given me new ideas for where my career could go. I applied to one of your leads and got the job! I wanted to thank you for posting and doing what you do because it has given me hope about my career!"
"Thank you, Meredith, and the entire Non-Clinical 101 alumni group. I accepted a non-clinical position today for Outcomes Manager (PPS Coordinator)!!"
"I am so grateful for your wonderful NC101 course. I felt confident in applying for telehealth jobs and going through the interview process. I just accepted a full-time position and am looking forward to this new horizon."
- Carly C, Telehealth PT
"Your course helped confirm for me that coaching is where I wanted to go. By learning more about some of the other options out there, I was able to eliminate areas of non-clinical work, which in the end gave me the clarity I needed. The sections of the course that focused on resume writing and how to take clinical skills and experience and apply them to a different setting were very helpful in giving me that clarity."
- Aimee R, Health Coach
"People sometimes forget that understanding yourself and your situation is so important when you change careers. You need to network and be strategic about making this transition. I loved being able to pull from different sections and resources as the need arose. Since taking Non-Clinical 101, I have worked as an adjunct professor, entrepreneur, and full-time care coordinator. It's a lot, but the course helped me understand the type of work that best matches my variety seeking personality!"
- DL, Adjunct PTA Instructor, Skilled Inpatient Care Coordinator
Frequently Asked Questions
"I think it’s really strategic and helpful to have the life priorities assessment and love/hate/easy/hard worksheet in the beginning. It really helped me focus in on the career paths most suitable to me. I got to focus on what my priorities are and what comes naturally to me. I love how the course lays out what type of jobs/roles can match my personality best, and I find that incredibly helpful."
