A common concern for people who plan on attending international medical school is in what states are they permitted to practice medicine and/or do rotations.

My research is as follows:
To be able to obtain a license and practice medicine, several states require specific approval for international medical graduates. These states are California and states that use California's approval list such as Kansas, NorthDakota, and Indiana. Also, Texas requires special approval.

The results are as follows:

Clinical Training (Rotations)
Four states require special approval to allow student from international medical school to do rotations. These states are New York, New Jersey, California, and Florida. (Note: The state in which you do your rotations is irrelevant once the rotations are ACGME accredited.)

The results are as follows:
