Your blog is just awesome. There is such a huge audience for this information. When you write the "Non-Clinical Medical Jobs for Dummies," can I contribute a chapter? Keep up the great work. ToniMD in NY
ToniMD, thanks for the props. I'll certainly let you know when I get to publish a book like that.
Actually, I'll confess that I want to sit down to write that "Non-Clinical Medical Jobs for Dummies" book. I'm a doc interested in transitioning to a non-clinical career and I'm finally finding this whole community after feeling this way for a number of years. I stumbled on a reference to medschoolhell.com a few days ago, clicked through straight to your 3/22 post on 10 non-clinical avenues for docs to pursue, and since then one link has led to another and I'm seeing the community out there of docs in my shoes! As I read more, I'm motivated to actually write a book about this world and the possibilities. I know there's a huge desire out there for this resource, which it seems to me is mainly online at this point. I used go to the medical section at bookstores looking for something about non-clinical stuff for docs and it was never there. Do you know of other good books on the topic that are out there already that I can check out? I know of the one from 1996 by AMA, but that's ancient. Also saw one by a Dr. McLaughlin. Is it ok if I shameless network through your blog? Do you know of any publisher that I could contact about doing such a project? If this book is ever written you'll be referenced big time!! Hope I'm not being to pesky! ToniMD in NY
