Resident in Trouble and Residency Reentry

On probation, resigned, facing termination, your attorney needs advice or have other residency dilemmas? Read below.

Before agreeing to any special performance-based conditions set forth by your residency program, or agreeing to resign in exchange for not being terminated, or attempting to re-enter medical residency using the same-old strategies as you used to first get into residency, we strongly recommend you speak confidentially with our residency re-entry expert, Dr. Mizani, for FREE!

Matching into residency once is a lifetime achievement; doing it twice with significant red-flags caused by being a former resident who did not successfully complete her residency is nothing short of a miracle – however stories like this are heard almost daily at ACMedical. Watch Dr. Yu, a former internal medicine resident, and how she successfully re-matched into psychiatry with the help of ACMedical:

Residents, fellows, physicians, dentists, pharmacists, or any other healthcare professional who plans to re-enter U.S. clinical practice after probation or termination from U.S. residency or fellowship, or after a period of clinical inactivity, often face unforeseen social, familial, personal, professional, and institutional obstacles. Rarely will a U.S. residency, hospital, or healthcare facility assume the risk of employing a former resident or fellow with only partial training completion, so in almost all cases a strategic approach to residency re-entry and completion is required.

Ideally, avoiding or rectifying the problems that lead to reentry should be your first step. Our Residency Mentor Membership allows current residents to navigate residency with the support and backing of a mentor to discuss problems or concerns that cannot be brought up during residency with a neutral party. Our Resident In Trouble Membership takes that a step further, adding intervention and support at critical times to defuse escalation and avoid reentry.

If reentry is the only option, approaching it is only effective after structured residency rehabilitation, peer-written letters of recommendations and clear resolution of all ACGME (or other) core competency deficiencies that led to that discharge are documented. The route to residency reentry will be different for each candidate, and Dr. Mizani and his team of experts can help you decide which will be best for you. To start:

  1. We teach you how to think like a resident selection committee member who will be considering your re-entry application by having you download a complimentary copy of Dr. Mizani’s article published in the July 2017 issue of Residency Program Alert: “10 Considerations when Handling Re-entering Residents” (mainly for re-entering medical residents, however applicable to other professions); then
  2. Fill out the form below, tell us about your situation, then schedule a date/time to meet with Dr. Mizani. Consultation is confidential and free; then
  3. If all goes well and you decide to enroll, you’ll have to decide on adding clinical rotations to bolster your case for reentry to your membership benefits.
