    Hey guys,

    just a quick question...what can you do with a MD degree... if you just graduated from carribean school and don't want to enter clinical practice.

    Are there any jobs for an individual with just MD degree??? if so, what kind?

    A degree is practically worthless without the license.

    As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

    Ok, the reason why i asked this question is because...suppose i don't match in 2009 and i need to sit out one year. What can i do in that year while waiting for 2010 match. I am taking loans so i am sure my loan company wouldn't appreciate me taking one-year vacation.

    So in the mean time just with an MD degree...what can i do? Any jobs out there for a MD degree holder

    Try going to your local hospital, etc. Or if you know anyone in the field, ask if they can use you. There's not going to be a job that says "Non-licensed MD's" and I know a few people that are working as office manager (clinic), or some such temp job to pay the bills for a few months. Don't be afraid to get a job that uses little to zero of your skills because sometimes that's all there is.
