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....

๐Ÿคท Worrying that you have no marketable skills.
๐Ÿ˜ฌ Feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed with inaction.
๐Ÿ˜ซ Struggling to find jobs that donโ€™t result in a pay cut.
๐Ÿ˜‘ Hitting dead ends looking for non-clinical jobs.
๐Ÿ˜ซ Failing to start since you have no idea what you want to do.
๐Ÿ˜ฐ Deciding you're too oldโ€“โ€“or too youngโ€“โ€“to make the move.
๐Ÿ’ธ Spending tons on coaches and resume writers with no results.
๐Ÿ“‘ Sending out dozens of resumes and hearing NOTHING.
๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Determining that no raise is better than no job.
๐Ÿ˜“ Skipping lunch and staying late to catch up on paperwork.
๐Ÿฅฑ Being too tired at night to research careers or take classes.
๐Ÿ˜” 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-clinicalโ€”and I put it all into one comprehensive course.

Non-Clinical 101 is a blueprint that saves you endless hours of research (and hundreds of dollars on pricey career coaches and resume writers).

๐Ÿ‘Š You CAN land land a job without paying $$$ to resume writers.
๐Ÿ‘Š You CAN make confident, educated decisions about your future.
๐Ÿ‘Š You CAN ace non-clinical interviews with confidence and poise.
๐Ÿ‘Š You CAN network your way into a high-level non-clinical role.

๐Ÿ‘Š You CAN earn a high salary and find performance-based roles.

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 canโ€™t recommend her course and expertise enough!โ€

"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."

- Jessica B, Inpatient Care Coordinator

"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.

Meredith Castin, PT, DPT

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!"

- Rachel S, Rehab Liaison

"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

"Thank you, Meredith, and the entire Non-Clinical 101 alumni group. I accepted a non-clinical position today for Outcomes Manager (PPS Coordinator)!!"

- Trisha D, Outcomes Manager

"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

Yes! I included plenty of non-clinical career paths that are open to assistants, and you will also find tons of additional content about networking, creating resumes and cover letters, interviewing, negotiating, and more that will make this course very much worth your time!

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 weeksโ€”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, Client Success & Account Management, 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 Health & Medical Writing
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!
Is Non-Clinical 101 for school-based therapists?
Yes, the Non-Clinical 101 course is designed for any rehab clinician,ย including school-based therapists. The reason why it works for anyone with any rehab background is that it teaches you how to see the skills you've developed in any setting, and then use different terminology to translate those skills into different roles. It also helps tease out what you enjoy/are good at, and match those preferences to non-clinical roles. You'll also learn how to create a non-clinical resume for any career path you pursue, how to interview, how to get inside the head of the hiring manager/interviewer to know the problem you're trying to solve, how to negotiate a job offer'sย pay, etc. I designed the course to provide you with everything you need to walk through the process of transitioning, including how to network, use LinkedIn strategically, etc.

"I think itโ€™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."
