Well, sort of.
There are a few (note: bloody FEW) exceptions to this. For example:

These two programs, Anesthesia and Radiology, were both still in effect last time I checked, but I also read that they could conceivably end at any time.
Aaaaand that's about it. I am not aware of any other exceptions for US practice with overseas residency training.
