I am new to this community but not new to contemplating my exit from clinical medicine. I have been weighing pursing in biotech/pharma/healthcare. I crave learning about innovative solutions in healthcare and medicine, creativity, being surrounded by more like-minded folk (patients and other doctors can be quite soul-sucking), and more critical and analytical thinking. I've seen physicians (even some former colleagues) cross over into equity research or managemetn consulting so I'm wondering what would sway one more to one side versus the other. I'm also contemplating my MBA and/or certifications so I can legitimize my interest.
FYI: my academic pedigree is pretty respectable, I work hard and love challenge, I have freedom to relocate, I am completing subspecialty fellowship so I am far along in medicine and I have good research (basic and clinical) experience.
