Few Other Options

Hello everybody.. there r a few other options after MBBS.
1). u can try for local entrance exams where thousands, if not lakhs of other equally competent docs try to get handful of PG seats.
2). After PG, if ur dad or uncle doesn't have a hospital, sit in a small time dingy clinic and try to earn ur bread. else join a 5 star city hospital for a lowly wage (14K INR in 2004 Mumbai)
3). Try to go abroad if u have loads of moolah.
USA - if u can get visa to reach US soil and can get good MLE scores.
UK - if u already r in UK and working there. all gates to UK r now officially shut.
Australia - if u r ready for bad racism and working in their peripheral units for few years.
Canada/South Africa/Malaysia are other options which I have not explored.
4). Medical informatics
5). Medical IT and software programming
6). Pharmaceutical management
7). MBA and hospital management or general management.
8). Health insurance work.
9). public health and WHO/UNICEF
10). Academics/research abroad.
11). open a shop and use ur brain to run it successfully.
12). politics - join local politics. doesn't pay much till u r corrupt.
13). IAS - very very difficult option and even more difficult to stay honest after joining it.
I guess these r the options running around in my brain for the last few months since UK govt closed its doors to IMGs (international medical graduates).
