I came across a few non-clinical job postings for physicians who want to do something different. It’s just to give you a sense of what else you can do with your medical professional license and medical expertise other than putting your finger in someone’s butt or counting pills.
Nexus is another popular company for UM work.
You can work remotely and need an active medical license in just one state – it doesn’t matter which. It’s part-time.
Renown Health is offering yet another UM position for a full-time physician, and you would need to relocate to the gambling capital of the US.
Medical Affairs Consultant
Syneos Health is consulting in the biopharmaceutical field and is looking for a consultant to join their team. This is a common non-clinical job posting for physicians I’ve encountered numerous times.
The ad is vague, but they would prefer someone with graduate-level experience in the field.
It’s a full-time gig in SF, Cali.
Group Care Consultant
Indeed has some interesting jobs posted and is looking for someone to lead these sessions with a group of patients for disease management.
The job involves travel, but you don’t have to relocate. You don’t have to be a physician for this job. Sounds rather interesting.
Linkedin has some interesting jobs posted, such as HCP, which is looking for QA reviewers. I’m guessing the job is in Chicago – who knows? What are batch records? More importantly, are they edible?
Willis Towers Watson, out of SF, Cali, is looking for a clinical pharmacy consultant with experience to consult on Group Benefits stuff. Sounds boring as fuck, but please, don’t let me stop you.
There are lots of medical professionals in the sales force for medical device companies. It can be insanely lucrative since much of the work is bonus based.
Hill-Rom makes all sorts of medical devices, including hospital beds. They are looking for someone to be their sales lead pretty much. This involves lots of traveling – a great way to escape your nagging partner and find some strange ass.
3M is looking for essentially another sales/consulting person, but this time it must be a physician who will help implement their technology or product. This is a remote job—lots of traveling.
Searching for Non-Clinical Physician Jobs
I find most of my non-clinical gigs by looking on Linkedin and sending messages to companies I like. I tell them my area of expertise and ask if we could benefit from some mutual work. Simple. Easy.
Experimenting is key, and you’ll find what works best for you.
Word of mouth is also effective if you know friends in the healthcare space and let them know you are interested in non-clinical work as a physician.
