A contributor to the SGU forum (Stephew) was discussing California licensure. Stephew speaks highly of the residents from the Caribbean that have worked with him/her at hospitals in California he/she did say that there are schools in the Caribbean that are not approved by California.
Stephew writes, “California is one of the states that do not trust ECFMG's ability to evaluate foreign medical education. They do their own individual evaluations of IMG's.”, and,” Currently only SGU, AUC, and Ross are approved from the Caribbean.”
I am a Californian and would like to be able to return to California to practice medicine should I choose to do so. I am a hopelessly addicted SCUBA diver and am planning on studying in the Caribbean. However, I do not want to limit my ability to practice medicine in my home state.
I see that **** ***** is the president of AUA. I have read that he was heavily involved with getting ROSS its California approval. Is AUA currently working on its California approval? If so what is the time line for its approval?
