I have already seen this thread but still wondering if Ophtho employers / credentialing committees have a unique perspective of probation. If a resident was put on probation but 1) successfully completed remediation program 2) successfully completed residency program but PD 3) put records of disciplinary actions in permanent file 4) summary letter in permanent file seemed to mostly document the incidents with only a small paragraph documenting the resident's ability to practice competently and independently. and subsequently, resident was honest & upfront and disclosed the above but 5) had difficulty looking for a job (maybe economy had a part too) 6) had difficulty getting fellowship due to probation 7) ULTIMATELY got into a fellowship program (yay!) in different state. The current fellowship program has been very supportive and understanding (hence the successful credentialing) . But what does the future hold after successfully completing the current fellowship? Will employers / future credentialing committees dwell on the residency record or will being successfully credentialed (the first time) have any positive impact in terms of looking for a future job? Thanks in advance!
