I'm probably getting ahead of myself but I'm just trying to be prepared. So, I have a couple of questions --
First, I go to school in NY but will be living and working in PA (Philadelphia) upon graduation. Anyone have experience with finding a job in a state outside the one you are going to school in? I'm wondering if I should take the boards in NY and then get a PA license or if I should take the boards in PA (which looks like a lengthier process).
Second, I anticipate graduating December2011/January 2012 and am curious as to when I should start applying for positions? I'm looking for a position in Philadelphia and preferably one with a residency program. Any advice would be so greatly appreciated.
I'm feeling totally clueless and my school is of little help! They assume everyone that goes to that school will also be working at the associated hospital. HELP!!
