    medical licensure

    Advertisements



    Hey,

    Know there are a bunch of states that AUA grads can/cannot practice as of now, but few questions if anyone has any info directly from clinical dept., NY office,anyone who knows the answers 100%:

    1) What states are we w/o a doubt not allowed to practice (know California...where else? what states are we "banned" from?)

    2) Keep hearing rumors from other students and people outside the school that you can apply for licensure in states that you are not approved in, and they review it on a case by case basis...is this true? And if so, then why not California?

    3) Aside from AUA, who I am not trying to publicly knock, but can't seem to give me a "yes/no" answer if I call and ask "Can I practice in ________" ...so is there some national website, office, dept (aside from each individual state medical licensure dept?

    Not trying to be negative about it...but all I can say for certain at this point is I can 100% PRACTICE (not talking about clinicals, res.) in New York or Maryland...aside from that, I have never gotten a definitive, concrete answer from the school, just rumors from other students and what they heard.

    Also, know there is a video in which Neil ***** addressed some of these concerns...to be completely honest, have not had the time to watch it but spoke to other students who did and they also said, "did not give a straight answer, talked about legal issues with each state and licensure...which I guess means no".

    Any help/info on specific states and the overall procedure is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Also about the issue of non-greenbook clinical rotations. It is my understanding that a large number of students have to go through blue book rotations. Will they have hard time obtaining license to practice? Not only the license, are they having hard time with residency matches. Any information about these issues will be a great help.

    In terms of the hospitals and what they're considered...I do know for a fact that many of the AUA rotation hospitals are either "D.O." hospitals or not greenbook...meaning, pre-matching there isn't an option. Not really sure how that weighs on reputation if going into the match. Some have very good reputations (one ex. I know - North Shore LIJ is one of the AUA hospitals I believe...but they will not offer pre-match contracts, but a great hospital/rep.)...In terms of licensure, i'm not sure if that plays a role, because someone told me it is more just a matter of the school and where we did basic sciences. Alot of this is rumor/what I hear too, so anyone who can clarify any of these issues for sure, please do.

    the rest of your questions were answered in that video by NS, also this issue has been beaten to all hells death in vmd, try doing a simple search and youll find a looooaaaaddd of information on this. and no, theres no one central spot you can find info if youc an get licensed in any particular state, you have to call each state board in which your interested in practicing and find out, off the top of my head, Cali, texas, nevada, arkansas and some other of those midwest states, follow the cali list, again from NS video. If you, like most of the AUA students, are from the Tri-state area, your good, NY, CT and even NJ your fine.

    1) What states are we w/o a doubt not allowed to practice (know California...where else? what states are we "banned" from?)

    arkansas, mississippi, kansas are the ones that i can think of immediately but there are one or two more

    2) Keep hearing rumors from other students and people outside the school that you can apply for licensure in states that you are not approved in, and they review it on a case by case basis...is this true? And if so, then why not California?

    because california is that way

    3) Aside from AUA, who I am not trying to publicly knock, but can't seem to give me a "yes/no" answer if I call and ask "Can I practice in ________" ...so is there some national website, office, dept (aside from each individual state medical licensure dept?

    nope, call the state medical board of the states you want to practice in

    Not trying to be negative about it...but all I can say for certain at this point is I can 100% PRACTICE (not talking about clinicals, res.) in New York or Maryland...aside from that, I have never gotten a definitive, concrete answer from the school, just rumors from other students and what they heard.

    dont rely on the school for this stuff, call the medical board
