I am a foreign graduate in my mid 50s. I have been living in the states for about 15 years now. I have had 6 months of Family Medicine residency training before I was let go. I believe the reason for my dismissal was age related, however, I can't prove that.
This event took place about 8 years ago. Since then, I have been working at a doctor's office as a physician assistant (though I have not gone through any official course).
Currently, I am out of a job as this doctor just retired. I am wondering whether there are any medical opportunities available to me.

I have heard a couple of years back that you can moonlight or even practice in rural settings without completing residency. Does anyone have any information on this? It would be great if you do or if you could direct me to a place where I could get more information about medical jobs available to an M.D. with 6 months of FM residency.
