Members Answer - Alternative Careers for Doctors

"I was an older med student, now 36 and just recently completed internship. For personal and family reasons, I have decided not to continue with my clinical residency. I am interested in learning more about alternative careers for physicians. I would greatly appreciate any recommendations." -- SK (October 2000)

ANSWERS

"I am a stay at home mother at present after finishing my residency in family medicine - I have been home for 6 months and have not yet practiced independently. I am currently doing some work from home on my own schedule for an internet company called Medcases.com, located in Philadelphia, PA. They are looking for physicians who can write medical cases for educational/CME purposes. The pay is less than for clinical work ($1,000 per case), but the work schedule is flexible. This is one type of opportunity that exists for MD's who want alternatives to clinical practice." AQ (12/2000)
