    What happens if all states follow CA approval list?

    Just curious. Do all IMG/FMG's go back to their country to practice? =(

    States that currently follow the California list have provisions which allow anyone who is already licensed to keep their current license. I do not know what would happen to these physicians if they tried to move to another state that adopted the California list. Even though many places 'adopt' the CA list, they often allow people to become licensed on a case-by-case basis. Some states allow licensure of a physician if s/he is board certified or licensed in another state. Some allow licensing after so many years of practice. It seems logical that if all states adopted the list and apply it in the same way that California does, that future graduates of schools without California approval would not be able to work in the US. Previous graduates would surely need to be 'grandfathered' into the system.

    I graduated over 24 years ago and practiced in USA for 20 years then relocated overseas,The California issue was problamatic in the past but can be ignored since most states did not care about adopting CA list,in today's conditions I beleive things totally changed and a non CA approved schools graduates facing tougher times getting license because the list of states adpoting CA list becomming too long for comfort.
    Non CA approved schools has to work on approval because they have no choice now for the best interest of their business and graduates.

    In the longterm, I think we'll see more states begin to drop their restrictions on FMGs/IMGs rather than add more restrictions. It's a fact--the baby-boomer generation is aging/retiring/reaching chronic illness age. As this generation ages/retires, the American-trained physician population will continue to shrink, and many older physicians will one day be our patients. As the US population grew, American medical education bureaucrats stood by and allowed a critical shortage to develop rather than increasing class sizes and meeting the healthcare demands of a growing nation. Whether this was done to boost demand/business/pay/prestige doesn't really matter--it happened, they're still dragging their feet in correcting the problem, and we'll continue to have a niche to fall into for the foreseeable future.

    I like the way you look at things! Very rare do you see optimism on this site.
