Need a second opinion?

  • So many doctors do not realise their potential, their transferable skills, or what they can do. Very often, doctors think that they only know one particular area of medicine, when in reality, throughout the entire journey of medical school and those first few years of hospital, they've been learning problem-solving, communication, leadership, and management skills, without realising it

Frequently asked questions

Why do doctors pursue a Divergent Career in Medicine?

At some point along their medical career journey, some doctors may decide clinical medicine is no longer for them. Others may seek an additional challenge or wish to acquire an alternative skillset to complement their clinical practice

The reasons why vary from doctor to doctor, however, many are hesitant to leave their clinical jobs entirely. This may be due to how long their studies took and how invested they are in their career, commitment to their patients, or perhaps they’re not clear about what possibilities are available to them outside of traditional clinical roles.

The number of doctors with an interest in exploring alternative career paths is growing, especially since the pandemic. According to our research, 72% of doctors are considering Divergent Career in Medicine opportunities.

A medical degree paired with the right skills can open doors to a vast number of career opportunities. 

What alternative career paths are available to me?

Whether you remain in medicine or decide to pursue a career outside of medicine, the opportunities are almost endless. The following are just some of the areas which doctors can move into:

  • Public Health
  • Medical Education & Coaching
  • Health Leadership
  • Digital Health
  • Corporate Medicine
  • Medical Law
  • Telehealth
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Management Consultancy
  • Health Informatics & Technology

  • Career Coaching
  • Civil Service
  • Complementary Medicine
  • Clinical Research
