To give some background.....I finished medical school and started a general surgery residency, half way through i decided to do 3 years of research at the NIH. During my time at NIH i decided i did not want to go back to complete my surgical residency, instead i am considering a medical consulting position at BAH in Maryland.
I've had two interview seccsions with two separate teams. Both interviews went very well. I met with a variety of people ranging from associates to principles. This is a very big career change for me, so it has been difficult to make a decision, especially since the salary and structure of BAH is suck a black box.
As a clinical physician/surgeon i have a potential salary after residency of >250k. On the other hand, BAH made me an offer of 100k to start, with the title of Sr. Consultant. What is the salary potential at BAH as a physician? They say i would likely be promoted to assiciate w/in 1 year, but the salary increase is only 10-15%, i think. The work they are involved with at BAH is very interesting, and i would love to join the firm, but the starting salary is incredibly low.
If anyone has any advice i would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
