Hello everyone, I am currently a resident in internal medicine that is planning to forgo fellowship to get into ER. Why now? Because I didn't know the field even existed until last year.
BS in biochemistry at a University of California school.
MD from a BIG 10 school in the Midwest.
Currently doing IM residency at an academic institution.
Planning on completing residency and being board certified before applying to these ER associate jobs.
Most of these job postings seem to require prior finance experience. How do I approach this? Take finance courses while not working? Apply for a M7 MBA program? CFA Level 1? Self-study? I know I don't want to practice clinical medicine on a long term basis anymore (no autonomy, healthcare inefficiency, etc.). I want to do ER because I have been managing my own brokerage portfolio for sometime now and enjoy it.
Thanks for your help.
