MOTM #120: The Non-Clinical PT with Dr. Meredith Castin

Monday, May 27th, 2019

Following up last week's episode where I discussed my distaste for treating with an episode 100% devoted to providing resources for those of you out there who may also not be so fond of the clinical life. Brought on my girl Meredith Castin, founder of The Non-Clinical PT, to discuss the amazing career development resource she created for PTs, OTs, and SLPs who wish to continue using their degree, just not in the clinical setting.

We truly are in a cash-based revolution right now, but for many people leaving the insurance model is not the answer. Meredith is here to help you. So whether you were ready to leave your job yesterday or if the idea of doing something different has been slowly growing in the back of your mind, this is the episode for you.
