What is a good way to network with local MD's to work under once out of school if independent practice is the goal? I really want to skip the hospital setting and go straight to the more independent area. I am sure in GA NP's must work under MD. Hopefully this will change in coming years. I am interested in working in either an STD clinic or Medispa which is almost unfounded territory, but as long as I stay within my scope I should be fine. Would it be better to find 'new' MD's? And how?
