    Advertisements



    Anyone know any recommended career options outside of residency once one received their Doctor of Medicine?

    Thank you!

    Pharma
    Academia
    Other (non-MD) Health Provider
    Administration
    Insurance

    But it's a hell of a long ride (to MD) to end up doing something else entirely...

    It is an option, but remember that MOST pharma gigs want to see demonstrated business/research experience and/or a completed residency in the field of interest.

    Bottom Line: Don't Fail.

    Agree failure or finishing medical school is usually so expensive medicine is the only real option to pay it all off. Work hard, know when you need help and seek it out early.

    Thank you!
    Try entering the field of research. Your background as a Doctor of Medicine will definitely be an advantage here. If you don't want a job in research, why not apply in the academe? Most doctors teach in medical schools as a side job. Maybe you can do it full-time this time. Goodluck on whatever path you'll choose!

    Not sure where you got this idea, but... no. No, they don't. At least, not in most places.

    Some do, certainly, but let's not overstate things here.
