- Entrepreneurship - starting a business, preferably healthcare related.
- Healthcare Management Consulting.
- General Management Consulting.
The question is.. yes, I do have knowledge of business management now. But should I throw away my training and experience in the field of healthcare, in favour of general business consulting? I am a bit hesitatant to do so.
I spoke to someone recently and the person said "It is easier for someone to become an MBA than to become an MD". Kinda true. That person insisted that I should go back to practicing Medicine in Canada or pursure Healthcare Management. And that I should not discontinue using my knowledge of Medicine.
Another person I spoke to, insisted that I had way too much experience and medical knowledge to go for an internship. He suggested that I should enter into a job contract iummediately after this term. That makes sense too. An internship may pay peanuts compared to a full time employment. Something to think about.
I do not remember how many times I have changed my resume and varied it in the direction of Marketing sometimes, Consulting sometimes and Entrepreneurship, sometimes. However, I do need to settle down with one choice. With the job market presently not in the best of shape, I should focus on a field that shall ensure guaranteed employment or a sustainable business opportunity.
After a lot of thinking, my stand today is that I should not abandon my knowledge of Medicine. So I think I am going to stick to Healthcare Management Consulting and Healthcare related Entrepreneurship. Enough of dilly dallying, already!
We are only 2 months away from completion of this Winter 2012 term. After that, we shall all chase jobs or internships. Need to make up my mind and stick to a plan :)
