I am a physician who has gotten some statistical training in my career, calculus, advanced stats, econometrics. I have gone to top schools (U of Chicago undergrad, Stanford for medicine, Harvard for public health) for my education.
After medical school I worked for a small but prestigiousfirm in San Francisco, but no other business work experience.
I am considering doing the MSc in Quant Finance from the University of London distance program, and/or the CQF program. The director of the London program has already told me that I would likely to be accepted given my stats background.
I am wondering what is the likelihood of getting a job after finishing one of the programs above. I know I will not be competitive with the PhD's or MBA's for the top spots, but as long as I can get a job I will be satisfied.
My age is also a factor (44).
I am making good money practicing medicine but simply do not like it, I should have gone down the quants path many years ago instead of medicine.
Any thoughts or advice?
