I am a physician in a primary care specialty looking to go back to residency, specifically in radiology. I have been in practice for ten years and have realized that I do not want to practice primary care for the rest of my life. Have you had a resident in a similar situation? What factors do I need to consider? How does Medicare funding for residency come into play?
Thank you so much for your blog and the book. I realize this is a rather late stage to make a change, and I would appreciate your input.
So, this is the deal: I would love to have physicians that have previously trained in other specialties. They make the best radiologists because they understand the clinical implications of diagnostic imaging. Some of my best radiologist mentors had completed another specialty first.
