I know this is a pre-med forum, but I'm not sure I'm allowed to post in the residency forum and I know residents read this forum so here goes. Taking a break from my MCAT studies, I have a question about specialties. Say I do a residency in general surgery and work in that field, but then after I retire, I still want to do some part-time work. Would it be possible to just be a regular family practice doc? Would I be licensed to practice daily medicine or just surgery?
