“There’s definitely roles for physicians who want to be more politically active and want to make a difference in government,” says Dr. Joel Shalowitz, professor of preventive medicine at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. Doctors who want to become health care administrators in the private sector may need to earn an additional graduate degree, says Shalowitz, who has both an M.D. and an MBA. Shalowitz serves as professor of executive education at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and previously served as the school’s clinical professor of health industry management as well as the director of its health industry management program. Even if you go into a medical school with a specific career track in mind, you are highly likely to change your mind, Shalowitz says. “It’s okay if people don’t know exactly what they want, because that is what the medical school experience is about finding out.”
