    Loop Holes in the future for licensure in CA, TX?

    Advertisements



    hi all,

    i know that you cannot get licensure from CA and such right away after completing your rotations and basic sciences.. but are there any loop holes for the future? where you get licensure in another state and work there for few years.. then be able to apply for licensure for CA eventually? I mean CA can't ban me forever right? At least IAU isn't on the disapproved list so far.. i just want to know what can be done?

    Contact the State Board directly

    California is going to be very difficult to apply for licensure because of the 10 year rule. When the time limit is up, IAU will apply for accreditation and once we are approved, our students may be able to practice in CA. I would suggest contacting the California State Medical Board at 916-263-2389 for specific information. They might have suggestions on alternative options. Please feel free to contact us at 1-888-440-4474 if you would like to speak to someone personally.

    each state has a none retroactive clause. what it basically says is that it does not go back to the past and on license graduates after the date of certification.

    I just spoke with the CA State Board

    I just spoke with CA state board, and they stated that it is not an automatic acceptance but the board can approve students as "far back as they deem fit". The board looks at how long a school has been in business as well as other criteria. She has also given me the name of the licensing manager, who I have called and left a message for. As soon as I get a reply, I will post again.

    eh?

    i spoke with CA state board also today and they said even if you get licensure from another state and practice their for years, it wouldn't matter. And i did hear about the licensure rule where even if your school gets accreditted in the future, it doesn't matter because one started school before it got accreditted so no licensure would be approved.

    It is true about not being about to get licensed in CA even if you are licensed in another state, if you did not go to a school that is accredited by the CA State Medical Board. I was quoting what a CA State Medical Board employee told me on the phone, that it is up to the board to determine if or how far back they would grant licensure.
    I am glad that you call the board as well. What I would suggest is taking what is written on their website over what is said over the phone. When the licensing manager calls me back I will repost and meanwhile I will retract the (Future/ Past) portion in my early post.
    Good Luck with California. -

    I Agree

    I agree Brenda MD, although it can be done, IAU is several years away from applying for accreditation with CA. So if HopeMD really wants CA then she should probably look into a US school or other alternatives.

    How is IAU "couple of years away" from applying. Inorder to apply for CA accreditation doesnt the school have to be open for atleast 10 years ? And IAU opened in 2004. So you are technically atleast 5-6 years away from being eligible to apply ??!! And then it usually takes a couple of years(in most cases) for CA to complete the accreditation process. So you are looking at (maybe) 8 years if not more....

    I apologize for using the word "couple". We were open in 2004, it does take 10 years before applying with CA and then it could take 3 or more years to approve. Thank you for correcting my use of couple. I will rephrase it my last post to say several.
