Today, due in part to the recent economic downturn, many senior physicians are considering a return to medical practice, either part-time or full-time work.

One of the hurdles in returning to practice is obtaining (or renewing) your medical license.  For up-to-date information on every facet of medical licensure, be sure to obtain the AMA's newly updated 2013 edition of State Medical Licensure Requirements and Statistics.

The JAMA Network provides resources to physicians who wish to keep their continuing medical education (CME) credits current. There currently are more than 15 CME programs on aging and geriatrics topics on the JAMA Network website
