I have a friend who is not satisfied with his GPR(he does not feel comfortable and is contemplating leaving it. He is in the GPR purely for the NY license requirement. He could possibly practice out of state for 2 years and obtain his license that way(anyone know anyone who took this route?). The GPR is not challenging him at all, basic exams, operative, mostly simple extractions(rarely complicated 3rd molar exos), maybe will do 10-15 endos in the entire year. There are no specialists except a prosthodontist. Rotations seem like a waste of time( relaxing, not doing many procedures, not learning a ton). He does have a license in a nearby state that would be a 1.5 hour commute to his wife who works where the GPR location is. He is thinking if he could make 3x the income and learn more in a private practice that might be better than staying at the GPR. I would like some feedback on what others think of the situation?
