New age career planning

Dr. Vijay Agarwal highlights various alternative career options for doctors besides clinical practice. He emphasizes the importance of understanding that hospitals encompass more than just patient care departments. Doctors can excel in management roles, including heading medical or non-medical operations departments. Additionally, opportunities exist in sales and marketing, where doctors’ credibility and understanding of the medical field provide an advantage. Other avenues include business leadership positions, advising in the pharmaceutical industry, and roles in biomedical equipment sales. Furthermore, doctors can contribute to health-tech companies, health insurance analysis, quality assurance, IVF, and more.


Dr. Mahesh discusses career opportunities in embryology for healthcare professionals interested in fertility treatment. He explains that individuals from life science backgrounds, such as microbiology or biotechnology, can pursue an M.Sc. in Clinical Embryology to acquire the necessary skills. These include handling gametes, using laboratory equipment, and understanding ART guidelines. Embryologists play a vital role in fertility clinics alongside other professionals like andrology technicians, IVF coordinators, and healthcare practitioners from diverse backgrounds like BAMS, BHMS, or B.Sc. Nursing. Overall, the field offers a rewarding career path for clinicians seeking alternative professional choices.
