Question for early-retired physicians

I formally "retired" at the end of 2014, but agreed to work on a per diem basis with my hospitalist group while they filled my position. The position was filled a year ago by a nurse practitioner who really wasn't emotionally stable (she cried on busy days) and then was injured in a car accident. She tried to work about 6 months ago and ended up needed neck surgery (a residual from the accident). So I came back a few days a month but they still have not filled the position.

I've asked to be off the schedule permanently on August 1st. I've had it with the group. It will create great hardship on the other practitioners but I don't really care what happens anymore.

My question:

What did you do about hospital staff priveleges, board certification, and your medical license? What would your recommend based on your experiences?

I can't see every going back unless there was some major financial disaster. My hospital reappointment is looming, so I may just want to resign rather than go through the hoops, "just in case..."
