    Not to sound tacky, but why aren't you looking for a position practicing medicine? Just looking for a change of pace? (My curiousity gets the best of me...) You seem to be extremely qualified in anything you'd want to do, either way...Have you considered pursuing a job as a medical director for an insurer? I bet they'd jump at the opportunity to hire someone with your qualifications, and you'd be eligible to get the kind of compensation you're worth.

    It is the commonest question that anybody would ask me about why i want to practice coding instead of medicine.My husband is a urologic surgeon which makes him 24x7 busy .I needed to find a career which can help me do justice to my personal responsibilities and still keep my passion for medicine alive.During my externship with the moffitt medical group i realised that medical coding can keep me happy as i can still feel very much in the field of medicine . I would be really thankful if you can suggest me any positions like the one you talked about in your post.

    That makes sense...I'm sure you'll be asked about it with every interview! It's awesome that you found something you enjoy doing that does still allow you to have a life.
    If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't go for an entry level or basic coder's position - you'll probably come across as over-qualified, which makes employers nervous (for retention purposes). I'd go for something a little higher up - either in billing management, practice administration, or as I suggested before, as a medical director for an insurer. You should also look into auditing - I think you'd have a unique advantage in that field, since you'd have a doctor's perspective as well as a coder's perspective.

    Either way, I'd get my resume out on Monster, Career Builder, and Linkedin. Somebody out there should be smart enough to realize your potential.
