Full Answer

The National Association of Retired Physicians explains that one of the main benefits of a group such as itself is that retired physicians can give back to the profession in which they served by mentoring practicing physicians. The organization offers a way for retired physicians to connect with current hospital or private practice residents and fellows as well as other retired physicians. Another goal of the NARP is to provide information about volunteer opportunities for retired physicians looking to continue serving in the medical field in some way.

The Texas Medical Association notes that local retired physician groups are a great way for retirees to stay active in their communities. It also provides them with ways to advocate for the needs of other workers and retirees in their profession.

The Royal College of Physicians, like many other retired physician organizations, has a listing of retired fellows and members. It fosters communication among physicians through forums and emails.
