When I hear from doctors who are looking for good non-clinical jobs, physicians often include a list of positive attributes such as 'I work well with others,' 'I am eager to learn,' or 'I have a strong interest in starting my own business.'
While these attributes are valuable in achieving success, they often don't help in gaining credibility in the transition to the non-clinical workforce, or in negotiating a competitive salary.
Your most valuable tool for finding a non-clinical job is expertise in regulations and policies.
Expertise is one of the most valuable tools that health care professionals possess. Doctors already have expertise in medical care. However, the current medical atmosphere has led to an overwhelming growth of policies in areas of coding, billing, licensing, accreditation, practice parameters, best models of health care, patient privacy, cost containment, documentation and electronic medical records- to name just a few of the complex regulatory matters that affect every aspect of health care.
Whether you aspire to work in an executive or administrative role or to start your own business, a mastery of these hard to grasp regulatory issues will serve you well and can potentially make you irreplaceable. When you customize your own areas of non-clinical healthcare policy expertise, you will reap the benefits of your invested time and energy.

I am a Dr from Venezuela graduated in 2003 and currently leaving in USA since 2004. I took USMLE STEP I and STEP2 but did not passed it, then i started working in Dental office and started working as an office manager until these days. Now, i feel stuck and would love to grow professionally and maybe get an MBA. My dilema is that i am a single mom of two kids and need to work to support them, but need to change job and i am not sure what job to look for.
