    For example, if i decide to get my residency in NJ, and finish it...what happens if i decide to go live in PA for example? Do we have the right to practice in the tri-state area??? or am I supposed to take a license exam for PA before I practice there? so basically I can't practice anywhere if I didn't do my residency there???

    Wherever you do your residency, you just have to pass national boards and Am Board of Pod Surg. Then, you apply for state license where you want to practice. A fair amount of DPMs have licenses in multiple states since they have offices, surg centers, etc in neighboring states or cramped New England.
