Also many super specialty hospitals are mushrooming offering employment opportunities. Some of the places where there is job scope for medical professionals are-

Government / Private Hospitals
Nursing homes/ clinics/ health departments
medical services of army, navy or air force
charitable institutions
medical colleges and training institutes as teachers
research institutes and medical colleges as researchers
private practice/ self employment

Opportunities in allied areas:-

Hospital Administration- Those with the administrative and management aptitude along with scientific bent of mind can make a career in hospital administration. The role of hospital administrator begins from planning to directing , coordinating and supervising the delivery of health care.

So if some one has a research bent of mind and a flair for writing , he or she can contribute to various journals, magazines, websites and newspaper columns dedicated to the cause of medical science either on a full time basis or as part time.
