A question I get a lot is “what can you do with an M.D. besides practice medicine?” In an effort to answer this question, I decided to launch a little segment I like to call Alternative M.D. Careers.
What we’ll be doing is taking a closer look at a real job, that’s available now, and that you can do with an M.D. Sure, there might be other qualifications that you don’t have, or some type of experience required that’s not that common with graduates fresh out of medical school. But, the idea is to get the creative juices flowing and at least start you down a path where you can perhaps discover that perfect job if you’re not planning on staying in medicine.
Basically, I’ll just take a job posting that I find at various hiring boards and post that information here. I’ll then briefly dissect the qualifications and see if there’s anything that you guys can do with it.
I’ve got the first segment nearly complete. It should be up within the next day or so.
