Non-Clinical 101

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 you have no marketable skills
😬 Feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed with inaction
😫 Struggling to find jobs that don’t result in a pay cut
πŸ˜‘ 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
πŸ’Έ Spending tons on coaches and resume writers with no results
πŸ“‘ Sending out dozens of resumes and hearing NOTHING
πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ Determining that no raise is better than no job
πŸ˜“ Skipping lunch and staying late to catch up on paperwork
πŸ₯± Being too tired at night to research careers or take classes
πŸ˜” 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-clinicalβ€”and I put it all into one comprehensive course.

"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. "

- Andrea M., ACCE - PTA Program Director

 

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. I'm sure it's rough at a lot of PT clinics.

- 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 a freelance writer, 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!"

- Anzika T.

 

"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

Are you qualified to teach me?
I'm so glad you asked! I am a licensed PT with 11+ years of career coaching, resume writing, and non-clinical experience under my belt. In addition to working in multiple clinical settings, I have worked as a clinical rehab liaison, as well as a full-time clinical content writer and head of content for a healthcare staffing company. I have also built and grown two successful websites (one was acquired by a healthcare company and the other is The Non-Clinical PT). This course was developed with insights from professional educators, career coaches, resume writers, and career counselors to ensure all of my materials reflect the latest practices in the job-seeker world. On top of all that, I have interviewed countless non-clinical therapy professionals to ensure I provide the most accurate and helpful information to help you along your journey. :)
How long is the course?
Technically, you can finish the course in a single weekend if you're passively watching the videos, but I don't recommend doing that. I have included tons of self assessments and personality tests that will be most helpful if you take the time to complete them as you go through the course. Plus, there are lots of helpful worksheets, checklists, and downloads, including a 175-page lookbook that goes in depth into single career path we cover. I recommend completing this course at your own pace across several weeksβ€”but I also gave you lifetime access so you can return and use the content when you apply for promotions and negotiate pay raises!
Am I guaranteed to land a job within a certain amount of time after I take this course?
I cannot guarantee that you will land a job within a certain time frame after taking this course, since there are all sorts of factors that play into how and when you obtain a job (including how many jobs you apply for, whether you follow the instructions I provide in this course, whether you take the steps to obtain the experience you need to land those jobs (if you don't have it), and how quickly you get moving to launch your new career. That said, I am confident that the vast majority of people who complete Non-Clinical 101 and apply the tactics will successfully land fulfilling non-clinical jobs. Non-Clinical 101 alumni flood my inbox with success stories, if that tells you anything :)
What, exactly, is included in this course?
You will receive lifetime access to 18+ hours of video training delivered in a simple 4-step format, as well as tons of cheat sheets and checklists to keep you motivated, a battery of personalized assessments to help you better understand which roles to pursue, in-depth training for creating resumes and cover letters, advice on nailing your interviews, tips on negotiating a great salary, and ways to help improve our professions by creating paths for others to succeed. You'll have a library of ATS-compliant resumes and cover letters that you can adapt to apply for all sorts of roles. You'll learn about 25 non-clinical career paths and how to get there. Plus, as a bonus, you'll get a 175-page lookbook covering each non-clinical career path in great detail. On top of all of that, you will also receive lifetime access to my private job seekers' group and networking group. You will also have access to "ask me anything" group Q&A sessions.
I'm an OT or SLP. Is this course for me?
Yep! I have included content (and resume/cover letter templates) that applies to all three disciplines, including assistants.
Will I learn about telehealth or entrepreneurship in this course?
Yes! We cover entrepreneurship and telehealth in the course, and I provide guidance on additional resources, should you decide to pursue either of those paths. You'll also find a bonus consulting lesson to help you set prices and discover how to land your ideal clients.
Does one-on-one coaching come with this course?
Non-Clinical 101 is very comprehensive; it covers the equivalent of many hours of one-on-one coaching sessions for a much lower cost. Non-Clinical 101 was built based on my experience coaching clients for the past 3+ years, and seeing common threads pop up across the sessions. The course does not include one-on-one coaching. That said, I am active in the alumni groups, where you can ask questions. I also offer periodic "ask me anything" live group Q&A sessions, and I do offer the option to purchase individual coaching sessions as needed (I only offer coaching to Non-Clinical 101 alumni).
What are these 25 non-clinical career paths you keep mentioning?
I'm so glad you asked! They are: Academia/Education, Account Management/Client Services, Administration/Management/Operations, Case Management/Care Coordination, Clinical/Health Informatics, Clinical/Rehab Liaison, Clinical Trainer/Clinical Specialist, Compliance/Quality Assurance, Consulting, Health Coaching & Wellness, Home Modifications & Universal Design, Marketing & Communications, Medical Science Liaison, Occupational Health, Online Entrepreneurship, Project, Product, & Program Management, Public & Population Health, Recruiting & Talent Acquisition, Rehab Technology, Research, Sales & Business Development, Telehealth, User Experience (UX), Utilization Review (UR), and Writing (Health & Medical)
Does Non-Clinical 101 award CEUs (continuing education units)?
At this time, Non-Clinical 101 is not approved nationwide for CEUs. Getting approval in all 50 states for three disciplines (PT/OT/SLP) is a challenge, but I am currently exploring this path! In the meantime, the course does automatically generate a certificate of approval, which you can use to apply independently to your state approval body for CEU credit. I am always happy to modify these certificates to your needs. In the past, I have added completion hours, a personalized signature, and other content required by states. I am happy to work with you to get you the best chance of approval by your board!

"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. "
