You can work as a GP after you do a 1 year rotating internship after you finish medical school.Hi, I was just curious if attending residency is required in order to practice as a GP?
How about moonlighting?Agree with Seneca. In addition to having a lot of trouble getting hospital priveleges in any semi-urban hospital, you would also be ineligible for about 95% of managed care contracts that I have seen. It's legal in a number of states to practice after a 1 year internship, but it's also legal in most of those same states to practice surgery even if you're a primary care doctor, since medical specialties aren't recognized in the law. It may be legal, but it isn't right. As complex as medicine is now, I think going into practice after a one-year internship would certainly be ethically questionable.
