No, but I sometimes wish I did.
I moved to the US and kept on studying molecular biology. I sometimes think about making the switch to an allied health career.

That's fine then.

You still play in the medical field nonetheless. When you was say switch, do you mean you're not fully utilizing your potential with molecular biology?

No, that is not what I mean. I feel I am striving in molecular biology. I like it but sometimes I feel I don't enjoy it enough for a career. I think I might enjoy a patient based/focused medical career better.

From your words, I agree. You seem to patient focused rather than research or lab based. Any chance you will actually do what you love? And by the way, how's USA coping especially with Trump?

Right now financial restraints does not give me the freedom to explore, but I am working towards building a non-lab career after my studies. It is getting more difficult for international students over here, I have an assistantship so I don't feel the burn right now, but many of my international student colleagues had a hard time finding their desired job after school. All in all, I'm still grateful for the opportunities molecular biology has afforded me

Here's hoping you accomplish all you set out for. Finding Desired Jobs in today's fast paced world is a tall task truly. One advice will be to be seek assistantship positions (could be unpaid) such as yours as it can be a leverage for them nonetheless.
Do you ponder about returning to set up something?

I have no desire to return at all. I can invest from here, living in Nigeria is a lot of unnecessary hard work.

Hehehe! "unnecessary hard work". Never thought of it this way before. Your decision is understood though. I work here with the idea of relocating eventually. Well, It's my pleasure connecting with you here.

Years down the line, have you now switched to something clinical?

The 2 years post-grad Pharmacy degree in Australia is not bad. You be a hospital pharmacist. Doing ward rounds with doctors, etc.
