    And that is the exact same way they deal with IMG's from Caribbean schools no matter how board certified you are, they abuse their powers, presume you are incompetent and steam roll over you. I guess the old saying what goes around comes around applies here. The TMB has been ran by these despots for some time now, that is not new. They just need to get caught.

    My opinion

    i just wrote the governor this email, we'll see if he responds.

    Dear Governor,

    I am referring to a recent hearing, http://www.house.state.tx.us/fx/av/committee80/71023a02r.ram , where it is evident this "good ol' boy" system, and politicing is still in force at the Texas Medical Board (TMB). There are higher-ups who have such fiat authority over licensing of physicians, that they are able to deny licensure to the most qualified candidates, based on where they went to school. Discrimination abounds in the TMB. As an International Medical Graduate, I know I will probably never get the opportunity to practice medicine in Texas. I am a Texas native; I've lived here almost my entire life, and all my family lives here. I went to a medical school in Belize, Central America, but our school hasn't proved "substancial equivalence" to a Texas medical school, so the hassle of obtaining licensure in Texas is nearly impossible.

    I have passed all my United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLEs); I even beat the US medical school average on them. I have not failed any US licensing exam, and I feel I could be a valuable contributor to the health and wellbeing of fellow texas, as a fully qualified and competent doctor.

    One reason Texas is having problems filling spots in rural locations is because the process of obtaining licensure here is more extensive and prolonged than probably any other state in the US (believe me, I've looked into this). It is a huge obstacle, and many shy away from it, like myself. Meanwhile, there are thousand and thousands of Texas who cannot access a doctor because there aren't enough, especially in rural locations.

    I implore you to take a look at the leadership of the TMB, and Dr. [edited for names] as one example, of what kind of people are determining the future health and wellbeing of Texans.

    The TMB has rubbed me wrong, and I hope changes occur in the near future. It is important to adequately scrutinize a doctor's credentials to see if he/she is competent to practice medicine. But there are polar extremes, and the TMB found this extreme. I am happy I will be able to practice medicine in another state, as most states will license me. It will be interesting to see what the TMB does as their doctor shortages continue to rise, and those slots that need to be filled cannot be filled because people like myself need to go elsewhere.

    Thank you for your time,

    my name, M.D.

    good job wcb 22
    All of you with ECFMG certificates should send same message to Texas governer,you guys are far better than many grads from Eastern Europeans and Asian schools that get automatic approvals in Texas,California,and others.power abuse and discrimination is not a good thing and eventually will backfire.
    Unity is power.

    continuing

    i have written the tx governor in the past.

    1) all interested parties need to contact their representative and politicians in the small towns needing doctors

    2) unfortunately the next legislature session is not for a while; they meet every two years. i did speak to tx attorney and the push is for
    easing the restrictions but their are some people on the health/medicine
    committee that need to be pushed.
    look up those names and write to them

    3) get involved. testify at the next board meeting like the individual
    did at the tenn board that led to the restriction of licensing. all it takes
    is one individual to be convinced. thats what happened at tenn and the
    rest of the good ol boys voted in unison without independent thinking.

    Well done, my friend, well done!

    These are the steps that will lead to somewhere, and I am sure the voices of many, like yours, will be heard and taken into consideration.

    Crushing Blow Delivered to Texas Medical Board at Hearing

    I think the tenn med board also needs investigation. I would encourage
    people to also contact the fsmb to enact changes and put these
    boards under more oversight and investigation.

    unbelievable----

    a full overhaul of procedures by an outside committee is
    direly in need.

    read this .. it is beyond shocking

    how many other medical boards are engaging in this behavior
    and how many innocent have had their career destroyed and
    damaged by this kind of actions.

    nice find fammed, this will definately produce changes in the TMB. i do not doubt other licensing authorities (like tennessee) engage in these kind of practices. maybe the new leadership will be more IMG friendly.
