SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey, i have one more question. i heard that some states doesnt require any residency or post graduate training to obtain a license. All u need to do is just graduate and start working (ofcourse u r not gonna have all that benefits of surgery,etc ) Suppose someone (i hope one day that someone will be "me" ) graduates from a Podiatry school and secures a residency in a state like that where he can get license without any post graduate training. So here is my question, what if that person while doing a 3 year residency in that state, also applies and gets his license and start working/his own practice in evenings or weekends (doing basic podiatry jobs like clipping nails and primary care at nursing homes,etc) and make extra money along with this residency compensation Is that possible or the residency programs make u sign papers under which u r not supposed to work.
