    AUA (and other IFG) Texans...I did some research

    Advertisements



    Ok guys, I know I have been wondering a lot about going back to Texas. I hear so much stuff, and it constantly changes. So this is where I am as far as information currently. THIS IS NOT FINAL! Meaning if you have any other information that you can add, or correct, please do!

    For Texas, start by visiting the TMB website:
    Texas Medical Board
    I called them and spoke to to them. Very nice and informative people IF you know what you are asking. So I asked them what exactly are the requirements for Licensing in Texas. They refered me to FORM J.

    Read this form CAREFULLY!!! It states, Texas will accept core rotations form 3 areas:

    2. An applicant who is unable to meet the requirement specified in (1) above may be eligible if the applicant:


    a. is specialty board certified by a specialty board approved by the American Osteopathic Association or the American Board of Medical Specialties, or

    b. participated side-by-side with students in an LCME or AOA-accredited medical school, and was taught by the same faculty as the US students, and provides a confirmation letter from an official with the US medical school, such as the Dean of the medical school or the Dean of Clinical Studies, or

    c. performed the clerkship(s) in a hospital or teaching institution sponsoring or participating in a program of graduate medical education accredited, at the time the applicant performed the clerkship, by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, or the board in the same subject (see the “Same Subject” section below) as the clerkship.

    So as I was told and as I understand it, long as the rotation is ACGME (ie Greenbook), AOA approved, or LCME approved, it is solid. here are the links to those sites


    I am currently at Wyckoff doing Surgery. So...as far as I know, we fall into AOA under Cornell Wiel School assoiciated with NYCOM. I have also heard it is ACGME but I am not 100% on that because of the wave of hospital closings. But the date i hear that the program is still greebook valid is June 30, 2009. Again, this is not confirmed!

    Now all I ask is you kindly add relavant information to this thread...kinda PAY IT FORWARD. We are all in the same boat and if we pool our info, we can fight the man!

    Good Luck all

    PS I have a low post count, so ValueMD did not allow me to post the links to the relative sites. I am really sorry. I know a link goes a long way in finding relavant information. I suggest google.
