There are a lot of career paths, it just depends on how you want to balance your involvement in medicine and international relations.
Just to name a few things you may want to look into:
Working with the CDC’s international programs
Working with one of the many organizations that provides medical relief to disaster victims abroad
Working with doctors without borders, or another organization that sets up clinics in underserved area
Work with refuge/immigrant health organizations
Work with the World Health Organization
Have you thought about a Masters of Public Health in Global Health or International Health? It would give you a great opportunity to study more about international health and international relations in the context of the medical field. Even if extra schooling doesn’t sound too appealing, you can also call up a program and speak to admissions and find out more about the kind of work their graduates do, which can give you more ideas of what you may want to do in the future.
Best of luck!
