"After 10 years out of clinical practice, Physician Retraining & Reentry provided a comprehensive and pertinent review of adult outpatient primary care in a convenient online format. After completing the curriculum I felt prepared to take the Family Medicine Boards and the standardized patient evaluation gave me confidence about going back to patient care. The week of shadowing included some experience with the EMR and was a good overview of the breath of family medicine. I finished the program eager to get back into clinical practice."
"I would absolutely recommend this course to someone who’s taken a break in medicine."
“Without PRR, I never would have imagined myself in another medical field – general practice – which is the field I wanted to be in and which was very different than my long-time ob/gyn practice. The PRR program allows me to help patients and continue my new field of medicine. The online course is set up beautifully. It all went so smoothly. I could not imagine doing this any other way.”
"What I liked about it [Physician Retraining & Reentry] is that it was very comprehensive and complete, and it gave me a very broad picture of what adult primary care medicine is all about."
After running a private urology practice for nearly three decades, I entered retirement for several years before reading a news article about Physician Retraining & Reentry. I always thought primary care was an interesting field, and I was ready to make more productive use of my free time. By completing the PRR program I was able to land a great job that averages about 30 hours per week at a federally qualified health center near my home. It's wonderful to be seeing patients again, and to be making income without the responsibility of running an entire practice.
"The training and knowledge that was dispersed throughout the course was very useful and easy to access."
“The PRR program ensures you really understand the materials through the exams and the final one-day, in-person practicum. Retraining as a primary care physician was interesting, challenging and satisfying.”
