RESIDENT IN TROUBLE & RESIDENCY RE-ENTRY

On probation, resigned, facing termination, your attorney needs advice or have other residency dilemmas? Read below.

Before agreeing to any special performance-based conditions set forth by your residency program, or agreeing to resign in exchange for not being terminated, or attempting to re-enter medical residency using the same-old strategies as you used to first get into residency, we strongly recommend you speak confidentially with our residency re-entry expert, Dr. Mizani, for FREE!

Residents, fellows, physicians, dentists, pharmacists or any other healthcare professional who plans to re-enter U.S. clinical practice after probation or termination from U.S. residency or fellowship, or after a period of clinical inactivity, often face unforeseen social, familial, personal, professional, and institutional obstacles. Rarely will a U.S. residency, hospital or healthcare facility assume the risk of employing a former resident or fellow with only partial training completion, so in almost all cases a strategic approach to residency re-entry and completion is required. Additionally, re-entry efforts are effective only after structured residency rehabilitation, peer-written letters of recommendations, and clear resolution of all ACGME (or other) core competency deficiencies that led to that discharge are documented. The route to residency reentry will be different for each candidate, and Dr. Mizani and his team of experts can help you decide which will be best for you. To start:

  1. We teach you how to think like a resident selection committee member who will be considering your re-entry application by having you download a complimentary copy of Dr. Mizani’s article published in the July 2017 issue of Residency Program Alert: “10 Considerations when Handling Re-entering Residents” (mainly for re-entering medical residents, however applicable to other professions); then
  2. We ask that you complete the two-step form below, tell us about your situation, then schedule a date/time to meet with Dr. Mizani. Consultation is confidential and free; then
  3. If all goes well and you decide to enroll, you’ll be asked to choose one of 3 levels of structured services (Clinical and Non Clinical; below):
