People are right that MD/DOs make more money salary wise in the long run but they aren't accounting for having capital at an earlier age. At age 25 with 100k+ salary, you can start making some decent investments such as real estate. I think if you were truly serious about making money then you would be better off gaining capital at an earlier age and investing said capital than going through 8-11 years of schooling + debt.
Honestly, if I were on an adcom reviewing that job description, I'd really be favorably disposed. Medicine is more than just medicine--it's really driven by social issues, such as self-care/ADLs, transportation, and the like.
You will need some actual hands-on patient care experience too, but I would recommend taking this job. Even if it doesn't help you get into medicine as fast as another job might, it will make you a better practitioner once you get there, especially if you develop a love for geriatrics.
