Working at the CDC
Some of the most interesting non-clinical jobs are at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). CNN is reporting how the CDC control room is active 24/7. That's right - get ready to go back to your old residency days before the 80-hr-work-week was enforced: sleepless nights, mugs of coffee, and lots of gum (or Altoids). The CDC currently has 400 people working on the H1N1 swine flu situation. I think they're going to need more than that.
