A quick question for those of you currently in clinicals in NY, and whishing to practice there. Those of you who started SMU prior to 2004 NY approval probably have done basic science portion program technically in an "unapproved" at that time school. Was this NY approval retroactive? I've tried to contact NYSED OP directly, but could not get any specific info out of them. Since most graduates are still in NY residencies they probably have 3 year limited permits, which are given to any residents. So far nobody from SMU had been licensed in Ny permanently yet (according to the medical board) I just want to understand how does this NY thing work? From what i understand it mostly deals doing no more than 12 weeks of clinical rotations prior to the approval. But my real question is if the status of the school had changed midway or closer to your graduation...are you going to be grandfathered in as a graduate of now approved by NY school? Sorry if I went too long. The State licensing forum appears to be very generic for issues like this one. I know many ppl who started SMU in 2002-03 will probably be in the best position to answer it.
Thanks very much
