Non-Clinical Jobs for Physicians-in-Training

"What else can I do with my degree other then practice medicine?"

I get asked this question a lot so I thought I would discuss it here on my blog:


Our mission is residency!  But there are many reasons that students and physicians many want to consider doing work in other health-care related jobs that can use their degree, make connections, and make a few dollars as well.

I get asked this question by a lot of students who are:

  • Waiting to match
  • Can't get matched
  • Taking time off to have children
  • Taking time off to take care of family members
  • Made it to medicine but want to explore other options other then practicing medicine


Here are some other options you might want to consider:

Here are sites that list Healthcare-related Jobs:  MedzillaMonster

Here's another website to check out: "DropOutClub"


I hope this helps you.  Remember to make connections and network.  "Who you know" is critical in Medicine and in Life!!   Our mission is residency!  I am rooting for your success.

Warmest Wishes,
