Volunteer work in healthcare admin satisfies your two criteria right? No calls. Non patient facing.

Non-patient facing basically mean no more practicing medicine isn't it?

Such rudeness. Just because it is not the answer you wanted to hear. Don't ask questions like this in a forum then cos you might as well reply to them ALL with the same answer


"You're not me. Why would you say XYZ work is more rewarding for me? Silly you"

Or maybe go into volunteer work in the medical field. More rewarding. (non financial)
