U-T San Diego: Program Seeks to Help Retired Docs Enter Primary Care

A successful career in medicine is neither
regularly scheduled nor part time, but a local surgeon hopes to deliver both to
retired doctors who want to continue seeing patients a few days a week with none
of the usual financial frustrations and time commitments attached.
In early August, Dr. Leonard Glass, a retired
Rancho Santa Fe reconstructive and plastic surgeon, launched Physician
Retraining & Reentry, an online course designed to help specialists make the
jump to primary care without requiring a return to medical school.
