Hey guys. I wanted to see if anyone can give me advice on what I can do for the future. I have applied for residency but have not been lucky so far, so I want to continue on with my life. I was thinking of what I can do, some options are: start Masters (MHA or MPH ... not sure which is best for me yet) or get a job. A little bit about myself: US IMG from the Caribbean, done with Step 1, 2CK, 2CS, have my ECFMG certificate.
I wanted to see if anyone can give me advice on what I can do regarding masters or getting a job. If a job, then what kind of work can I get with my MD degree and ECFMG certificate.
Thanks in advance!!

Medical File review

Hello -

If your English is proficient enough (in case of IMGs), a good option to work remotely is chart review - summarizing and analyzing medical report for board-certified doctors. This is a full-time position, you can work remotely, it pays better than residency would, and you end up getting Letters of Recommendation from board-certified specialists.

PM me for information - XS|Health Sacramento, CA

Layla, The most important thing you need to do is not give up on your dreams. First thing you need to do is ask yourself what you want. If want you want is to be a doctor, then work for it. Make yourself a plan. Study for step 3, get a job that is relevant to the specialty you plan on applying to and look for research/volunteer/publication opportunities. Now if all you want is to work, the degree you have isn't worth much without the residency. What you can do is use it as "experience" you make your resume. Make a section labeled CLINICAL EXPERIENCE and type out all your rotations. You can try applying on indeed looking for administration/medical assistant jobs. Lots of medical offices like hiring people with multi tasking capabilities. Hope that helps.. Stay positive, make a plan for yourself.
