    In theory, one could work for consultancies, pharmaceutical companies, otherwise one might be able to do (or assist in) research.

    Truth be told, unless you have additional marketable qualifications (e.g. PhD, MBA, etc...) you might find getting a job without post-graduate training (and a license) very difficult as an IMG.

    There's also a book that helps explain one's options outside of clinical medicine, published by the AMA.

    unlicensed you can do research voluntarily (or minimally paid), or work retail----just about anything except medical, due to HIPPA laws, etc. you can only do nursing or things like that in a hospital if you have proper certification. There is a way to get a medical assistant certificate off your ECFMG certificate so you can also do that. Travel, etc.

    You may contact the community colleges and teach A&P or pathology turst me it pays well only if you have good teaching skills! Good luck

    Copy pasted from other post

    Jobs
    Excelsior College in New York has a Registered Nurse challenge program for medical professionals. After obtaining the R.N. license apply for positions as a surgical First Assistant. I've heard of some first assistants making $100k plus. If you choose to work as an "agency nurse" some RN's are pulling in $60 to $80k.

    https://www.excelsior.edu/portal/pag..._schema=PORTAL

    "Admission to our associate degree nursing programs is open to:
    • Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses (LPNs/LVNs)
    • Licensed Psychiatric Technicians (LPTs/LMHTs) -- CA, AR, KS, CO only
    • Certain classifications of Military Corpsman
    • Paramedics
    • Respiratory Therapists, Respiratory Technicians, Respiratory Care Practitioners
    • Physicians
    • Licensed, Certified, and Registered Lay Midwives
    • Students who have completed at least 50% of the clinical nursing courses in a registered nursing program
    • Physicians Assistants (RPA)
    • Naturopathic Doctors
    • Chiropractor"

    Surgical Assistant for FMG's
    In addition to the above mentioned post, there are two organizations that offer U.S. Nationally recognized certifications for surgical assistant (CSA) for those that are FMG physicians.

    http://www.nsaa.net/membership.shtml
    Individuals who present verifiable documentation of graduation from a foreign medical school and have verifiable experience as a surgeon or a surgical rotation equivalent to 2250 hours of surgery/surgical assisting.
    These individuals must submit:
    a) A copy of the diploma or a reference letter from their medical school
    b) A reference letter from a sponsoring U.S. surgeon, or equivalent, who has evaluated the individuals technical skills and their aseptic technique and
    c) Proof of having passed the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or equivalent exam (unless this has been waived by the review committee)
    and

    http://www.absa.net/PHYSIC~1.HTM
    • Physicians (U.S. or Foreign Trained)
      Provide a certified copy of your Medical School Graduation.
      Provide a certified copy of your Residency or Advanced Training.
      Successful completion of TOEFL examination or equivalent, documenting English proficiency
      Provide a copy of your Curriculum Vitae.
    • The above required items must document: a minimum of two years primary or advanced surgical experience.
    Also, the State of Texas offers licensure for surgical assistant after 3 years of experience + other reqs.

    http://www.tmb.state.tx.us/professio...st/surglic.php

    Another job option while studying for your USMLE exams is offered by the regionally accredited Rutgers University of the State University of New Jersey. You take 8 challenge exams totalling $280 to become a Medical Assistant. (takes about an hour an exam)
    http://skillcenter.rutgers.edu/*****...Y8VE6ksJBPZqRb.
    +
    get an American Heart Assoc BLS card and someone should hire you for $10 to $12 an hour. The bright side is that you are keeping your critical thinking skills sharp.

    Hope this helps!
