    Greenbook and New York Licensure

    Advertisements



    There has been a lot of talk both amongst the clinical students and on this forum about Greenbook rotations and New York State Licensure. Can anyone with information on this PLEASE post on this thread regarding whether or not you need all Greenbook rotations to practice in NYS? Some things I've read and heard thus far, lead to one of the following conclusions:

    1. All CORE rotations done in New York MUST be greenbook in order to gain NYS licensure. If you do your cores outside of NYS, it doesn't matter if they're green or not and you will still be able to practice in NYS.

    2. It doesn't matter if the core rotations are greenbook or not, as long as the RESIDENCY program you do is green.

    Please, let's all work together to settle this matter once and for all. If you have ANY information (things you've heard, people you've spoken to, e-mails you've received, etc...), please share it with everyone on this thread. Thank you all for your time.

    OK so #1 is true by default because to do a rotation in the state of NY it has to be green or blue. You need a NYSED letter stating that you are able to rotate at the hospital. NYSED only approves rotations that are green or blue. So technically you can't do a non-green/blue rotation. I'm sure people have done some that are not "technically" green/blue but there are so many technicalities that even the law makers get lost.

    #2 is also true by default... ALL MD residencies are green... this is in itself the definition of being green. If there is an MD residency program then the rotation is green.

    In summary, any rotation you perform in the State of NY has to be approved and is therefore green/blue so need to worry about it. Getting licensure in NY has never been a problem for IMG as far as I have ever heard... hence it being known as an IMG friendly state.

    So what you're saying is that it doesn't matter if I do a green or blue rotation in NY, I'll still be able to gain licensure in NYS?

    Nysed

    This is what the NYSED letter states "Clerkships may be performed only in teaching hospitals that have a formal affiliation agreement with the American University of Antigua, West Indies which have been approved by the State Education Department and only in those clinical fields in which the hospital has an ACGME or AOA accredited residency program."

    Therefore if you did a rotation in NYS its green or blue, so technically NYS will give you a license as long as you did all your rotations (no need to worry about green or blue for NYS at all really)
