    I was put on probation at my old institution for bs reasons (not being aggressive enough- it was an academic probation) and switched programs (and fields). Does anyone know if this kind of stuff will affect my malpractice insurance in the long run and affect my application for a permanent license?

    No and no. The things that can happen during residency that can affect those things are getting sued, having action taken against your licence (or temp license, education license, whatever it is in your state), having a hospital restrict or revoke your priveledges or getting in trouble with CMS or EMTALA. Just having some interdepartmental action or a bad review or so on won't come up in licensing or med mal approvals.

    But it can affect your ability to get a job and hospital credentials. If possible, get documentation to support it was bs.

    I don't think any of the credentials apps I've done asked about that. They do ask if you've ever had your priveledges suspended for anything other than med records. I wouldn't think that an academic probation and a suspension are equivalent.
