I'm currently a first year resident in a competitive surgical subspecialty program in the northeast. As my intern year as progressed, I've become extremely dissatisfied with the practice of medicine and i'm thinking of making the switch to finance or consulting.
How feasible is this and how can I go about making the switch to finance?
- B.S. in Molecular Biology from top school (HYPSM) with 3.6 GPA, Great MCAT score (34+)
- M.D. from highly regarded State University (ranked in top 20 medical schools)
- Currently an ENT resident at top program (Harvard/UCSF/Columbia caliber)
Prior to medical school, I worked for one year at a boutique consulting firm focused in Healthcare. No prior finance experience. Many friends in finance/consulting, so I'm familiar with the industry, but I have never worked in finance directly.
Would it be more feasible to go into Equity Research vs Investment Banking? How should I go about making the switch?
