What is our stance on questions on medical careers? Are they on-topic or off-topic?

Example: What is the best method to get a non-student clinical rotation in the US?

Medical students in the US usually participate in several clinical rotations before they graduate. What about someone who is not a student, but does have medical license (passed the USMLE tests), and is interested in doing a clinical rotation? I have noticed that hospitals list general information about rotations, but do not list them under their "career" open jobs. Any recommendations?

Although it's not listed as one of the specifically on-topic categories, I think the default should be to include rather than exclude. I see no harm in a well-formed question about medical careers and/or education as long as it meets the other basic requirements (prior research, not just opinion, etc).
