Warning about Colorado and Oregon. Very high state income taxes. Oregon give you rural tax credit but that doesn’t fly if you work in Portlant. Colorado does not have any tax incentive.
I worked in Colorado for 18 months. Left to go work in Oregon.
I found Oregon to be very difficult to be accepted as an “outsider”. Quit my job after 3 months, will never work in Oregon again. Atmosphere is too hostile.
You being a specialist may have an easier time but for me as FP, I went back to locums because the internal corruption of companies in Oregon was too much to bear.
