Im coming to the end of my final year at medical school and am seriously considering changing careers. Investment banking is the career I'm after.
I was just wondering whether anybody has any experience of such a career change and how somebody would go about it!

It's a difficult workforce to break into as many undergraduates from other disciplines spend their whole time at university pursuing relevant internships, contacts, and experience. You might want to start with your university careers service. Although careers services can be a bit hit and miss, most universities with medical schools have a large population of students wanting to pursue investment banking. They are likely to be able to point you in the right direction.
I've known some very talented and focussed medics get part way through the selection process with major banks but ultimately get rejected. You might have to make quite a substantial commitment to the selection process.
