I am not sure if we can just post or what. If I can, here goes.
I'm currently in my 2nd year of endocrine fellowship. I fast- tracked to this position thereby skipping my 3rd year in residency. Unfortunately the program accepting me didn't j ow how to structure anything and a wage dispute arose based on contracts we had signed etc. Subsequently I was harassed, received suddenly negative evaluations, and my PD tried several times to get rid of me this year. In Feb they notified me that my contract would not be renewed. This sucks bc with the fast track path, I would need an additional year to board eligible for both endo and IM. However, stopping that year means that I am not progressing down the path that AbIM had approved and my certification will be revoked. Hence, I will never be able to practice medicine again. It's a real stinker because we have a contract with my home state for me to return to practice endocrinology that if I don't return, I'll owe $250,000. Furthermore, as a person with and a sister to a person with diabetes, it has been my lifelong goal to become an endocrinologist to care for patients suffering form this disease. All based on a wage dispute.
Naturally I'm fairly ticked off. Have a lawyer. Can file for an appeal. Likely will have to sue for wrongful termination.
Boohoo. But really this post is about a position as a MSL for a drug company. It is in my area of expertise and would provide benefits, salary and stability. Has anyone had similar experiences with this line of work?
