Dr. Meredith Castin, physical therapist and founder of The Non-Clinical PT, talks to Dr. Stephanie Weyrauch and Dr. F Scott Feil about her start in physical therapy, symptoms and prevention of burnout in healthcare, the birth of "The Non-Clinical PT", opportunities outside of patient care for healthcare providers, maximizing the ROI in your side hustle, tips for effective coaching others, and MORE!
Meredith Castin, PT, DPT graduated from University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (San Marcos) in 2010. By the time she had been working for just three years, she burned out on patient care. She tried just about every setting to make sure, but her heart simply wasn’t in clinical care. She set a goal to treat clinically for five years before leaving patient care to become a copywriter, and that’s exactly what she did—but it certainly wasn’t easy. Along the way, she co-founded NewGradPhysicalTherapy, and during that time, she was approached by many other therapy professionals who were feeling burned out in traditional patient care, and they felt as lost as she had once felt.
In 2017, She created The Non-Clinical PT as a small resource for therapy professionals seeking change, and the response was astounding. Since then, she has helped countless PT, OT, and SLP professionals find the confidence and inspiration to pursue—and land—non-clinical roles. In her spare time, Meredith enjoys rock climbing, snowboarding, creating art and music (check it out!), and spending time with her husband and three cats
