    residency

    Advertisements



    To Anyone Outhere
    Hi I'm a recent graduated from Bonaire (last couple months), and will be applying for next year match (2009). where can I get infomation pertaining to which state will allow me to do my residency? I suppose I need to call the state board myself right? or maybe my school will have that info but it has no track record which would be practically impossible to find a residency spot or let alone state that would grant me a license to practice?!!. Anyway, I know California, and Texas are out but is this also mean that I can't get a license there either (CA and TX)? Getting into a residency and getting a license to practice are two separate issues right? thx!

    Why not just call the school office. They probably have more information that could help you out. Peace!

    Newgrad2,
    I am currently a student at Xavier. I also know for a fact that New Mexico, Cali, Texas, Virginia, and New York do not allow us to do residency. However, i did call the New Mexico Boards and they said as long as you take the entire pre med/ med prog regardless of an undergrad and score high on the boards then and only then you will be aloud to practice. I know, also they will look at your track record...if you have worked in the state healthcare departments. For exmp, im an LPN i worked for 3yrs then also got a Pharm Intern tech certification and worked in walgreens for 1yr. So it really depends on the state. Its hard work to get in but once you have one of the "band" states then its much easier to get into the others. Goodluck with everything!

    To newgrad2 and everyone else:

    I recently went to a seminar held for Xavier and met with the directors on the board of admissions. This is what they clearly told me:

    - You CANNOT do residency OR practice in California...ever.
    - You CAN do residency AND practice in Texas, but you must be the 'creme of the crop' in the pool...meaning your USMLEs all need to at least be 90% or above.
    - You CANNOT do residency or practice in Tennessee AND Nebraska because they have a "No medical student accepted unless the school they graduated from is 15 years or older" rule. Xavier still has a decade to go before that happens.
    - You CAN only practice in New York IF you do 12 WEEKS of your rotations in the state. If you go over and do 13, you will not be allowed to practice, and if you don't complete all 12 weeks, you will also not be able to practice. This is a very WEIRD rule, but it's there. It is possible for you to transfer and do a 12 week rotation anywhere you want as long as you know someone or have a doctor who is willing to take care of you there. That's the only way transferring to NY for 3 months would be possible in this scenario.
    -You CAN do residency AND practice in Florida, but it's pretty much like Texas in that it is almost impossible unless you have brilliant scores and stats.

    3 states you cannot do residency or practice in AT ALL if you graduate from Xavier:
    1) CALIFORNIA
    2) NEBRASKA
    3) TENNESSEE

    3 states you CAN do residency and practice in if you graduate from Xavier and do amazingly well are, like FREAKISHLY AMAZINGLY WELL:
    1) TEXAS
    2) FLORIDA
    3) NEW YORK

    All other states are fair game and you can match for residency and practice there just like any other U.S. medical school would allow you to.

    I hope that load of info. helps! Good luck with the residency stuff! I may be joining Aruba this Fall, I'll def. be keeping in touch in the future!

    You can practice in NY after you do your residency. The 12 weeks rule is only for getting residency in NY. After you get your residency in whatever state you match, then you will be able to practice in NY. Hope this helps!
