View Full Version : Medical school years to graduate requirements??

03-03-2014, 04:18 PM
Are there any states that have a limit to the number of years you can take to graduate medical school as an IMG to get licensure in that state? I had to take 2 LOAs during clinicals (no failed rotations or any other academic problems.. passed all steps with above avg scores on first attempt).. I think I remember someone saying long ago that there maybe a 5 or 6 year requirement for some states? I m from California.. and I go to a Caribbean medical school..

Please advise.. thank you

For those interested there is no min or max number of years for California.. I called and verified with california board... just need good standing with your school upon graduation and to have passed all exams..
