Good jobs to transition into Healthcare.....
September 26, 2017 3:28 PM   Subscribe

Im currently a field engineer in the Healthcare field. Previous to that I was a network engineer for the last 14 years. Im looking to transition into a fixed position in a hospital but im unsure of what transfers the best (Positions wise). For the past for years ive primarily worked in Cath labs supporting the equipment of my company. I dont want to go back to IT (Network admin, engineer, etc.) Ive been told I should look at Analyst positions or Apps. What would you recommend? BTW, I dont have a college degree. Thanks in advance.

You must have some contacts at hospitals where you've been servicing the cath labs. I'd try reaching out and asking what sort of roles might fit any might be available.

Oooh Clinical informatics is fascinating. I moved into it (our Canadian hospital is implementing Epic's system). My background is a PhD in English, but Epic has made credentialing and teaching their system really fun and exciting and you don't have to be a clinician to learn it. And there's a LOT of opportunity!
