Is it it worth it for a GP to go back for Otho residency?
I’m almost 10 years out as a GP, kinda burnt out from needles/blood/injections. I do like providing simple Ortho, and the happy patients. On the flip side I make about 250k a year, no student debt. I could pay in full for one of those private programs, but is it worth it? It would probably eat away all my savings. I’d like to make atleast 300k when I’m out of residency to make it worth my while of going back, plus also enjoy my career some more. Thoughts? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
