Physicians who have let their licenses lapse but want to return to practice have options, according to MDLinx. One such option is to participate in a re-entry program — and the Physician Retraining & Reentry Program (PRR) is one of the most prominent of these programs, MDLinx said in an article titled “How to Return to Medicine After Retiring.”
“According to experts, re-entry programs not only serve as a path to re-licensure but also provide strong educational experiences for those who may have completed medical school and postgraduate training many years earlier,” MDLinx wrote.
“The Physician Retraining & Reentry Program (PRR) is not only intended for retired physicians but also for surgeons or specialists who want to switch to practicing primary care, as well as those who have been pursuing work opportunities outside of clinical medicine for some time. It offers credits through the University of California San Diego (UCSD), and learning is self-directed via online modules. In addition to garnering employment at hospital or VA clinics, job opportunities for graduates include university clinics, industrial clinics, and federally funded clinics,” according to the article.
PRR was created and designed to address the physician shortage by offering a path for physicians to re-educate, transition and return to practice as primary care physicians.
