What kind of jobs are good for Medical Students?


Recommended Posts

Hello! I am currently a second year medical student and am looking for a summer job. I was wondering which jobs are more suitable/appropriate for med students, if any? Looking for something that partially applies/is related to our degree, so not working at a restaurant or in retail etc. The only thing I can think of is perhaps working at a pharmacy but does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks for your help:)

Look for a research job . No one works in a pharmacy as a med student.

Some med students were pharmacists before starting med school so they continue to work at a pharmacy. I think it pays way better than any research job they're likely to get as a student.

Yes on the off chance he’s in the minority that was a pharmacist you would be correct. 
 

want to bet he’s not? Stop trolling he didn’t mention anywhere he was a pharmacist.

In my opinion the best job is a paid research job in a specialty you are applying for if you are applying for a specialty outside of family med. If you are pretty confident you want family medicine, research is less important, so a paid research job is still a great option, but there are alternatives as well depending on your background. I'm thinking industry, internships etc. Generally speaking though, its hard to make much money as a med student because you don't really bring anything to the table for most summer positions unless you have a previous background in a field.

"DAMN IT! How did I forget I was a pharmacist?! Again! Case closed guys, ignore my question."
