    Licensure regulations

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone!

    I have a few concerns regarding the procedure for obtaining a license in US.

    Just completed my Bachelor's at University of Toronto with a GPA at 2.0. I know horrible!! Also, mcat score is only 15.

    But, i have great deal of extracurriculars. Student organization Executive, some big time fundraising initiatives, 100hr hospital volunteering, research experience at Toronto Western hospital. and great work experience. All this easily conveys my outgoing personality.

    Essentially, i self-selected myself out of the race for Med School in my second year. Mostly because of excessive commuting and other social problems. But, soon after i completed my undergrad, my sense of purpose was realized.

    I applied to a few caribbean med schools: Ross, Saba, MUA. I was turned down by Saba thus far. And, I have an Interview with MUA. Assuming, everything goes well, and i start med school, and even complete my residency in New York.

    I was told the following .... At the time of obtaining license ..... :
    "Not knowing the rules and regulations can stop a medical career dead in its tracks if you dont know the rules. The license application involves a review of EVERY month of your time since graduation from high school. They review your undergrad record, MCAT scores, med school record, hospital rotation, residency records, all of your job & extracurricular activities, and most importantly your USMLE score record."

    In light of this above comment, would a bad academic record in Undergrad after successful completion of Med School and Residency still deny a license application.

    Especially, if you are presently licensed and practising, please share your knowledge and experience. PLEASE!

    Thanks very much

    There are 50 states with 50 different regulations concerning licensing of medical doctors. You have to and MUST check with each and one of them you are interested, not at VMD.

    Here you will get opinions, but opinions won't get you a license.
