I'm interested in getting involved in finance/business along with my medical career. However, I don't plan on just managing a hospital or running a phamaceutical/medical device company instead of my practice. Rather, I hope to get involved in consulting work/scouting for hedge funds, venture capitalists, private equity firms, mutual funds, or consulting firms (Deloitte, Frost and Sullivan, McKinsey..). Or perhaps getting involved directly by becoming an angel investor. Has anybody on SDN done this or know somebody who has? I'd really like to keep practicing, because I'm too much in love with medicine to give it up for business - or else I would've done that instead! But the thrill that comes with entrepreneurship and working to find hot start-up is great, and I'd like to work with that. I know there are MD's as principals of private equity firms and such, how do you get into that kind of thing?
