    Georgia Adopts the California List

    Advertisements



    As of February 5th Georgia has officially adopted the California medical school approved list.What this means for people applying for training or permanent licensure is unclear as some states enforce the list differently.What this means for people potentially matching next month in Georgia from unapproved schools is also unclear.Their laws aren't updated so one would have to call to find out or wait. As usual these meetings take place with hardly anyone knowing that this is occuring ahead of time.A lot of us have made some real progress with some states in getting them to understand the effects of their decisions.Let's try to get Georgia to rethink their policy as well.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    HI guys, i was wondering if you could help with a decision im about to make.I'm british but in a medical school in the Ukraine right now and it sucks,it is accredited and recognized by all states but the quality of education and actual teaching very very low and poor.i found out that i could transfer to smu and then be able to do my clinicals back home i.e UK...but i also found out that smu is dissapproved in some states in the U.S which i may want to work in later on in life.Do you think it is a good idea to move to smu still?i'm really confused because im stuck in between,staying here and not being well educated but recognized,or going to smu ,being well educated but now recognized everywhere...

    GA licensing

    Am I missing something. The link provided just says that you must complete 3 years of postgraduate training. It does not say you can not be licensed in the state. Many states are like this.

    Help me here if I am missing something here.

    Ga

    Again unless I am misreading this this is really somewhat of progress. Ga. I believe used to be just a cross the board for IMG in that you had to have 3 years. Now they are at least opening up IMG's to what US/Canadian students have which is 1 year post grad training. I don't like this rule anyway but you could put a positive spin on it.

    I certainly could be reading this all wrong.

    The 1 year vs 3 years is the amount of post-graduate training required before you can apply for permanent license. That is at least my positive spin on the rule. If you read the current rules, as they have not been updated yet, only graduates of LCME accredited and Canadian medical schools can apply for permanent licensure after 1 year of residency. The privileges of the rule have now been extended to schools in the Caribbean including SGU, Ross, AUC, and SABA, or those schools which are included in the California medical board approved school list.

    NEW IMG POLICY

    Board changes policy concerning graduates of medical schools located outside the
    US and Canada

    On Friday, February 5, 2010, the members of the Georgia Composite Medical Board voted to use the list titled Medical Schools Recognized by the Medical Board of California as its official reference for approval of medical schools located outside the United States and Canada. Graduates of the schools contained in this list are required to complete one (1) year of post graduate training in a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

    Graduates attending schools not listed in the Medical Schools Recognized by the Medical Board of California must complete three (3) years of post graduate training in a program accredited by the ACGME.

    My understanding is this: They adopted the CA list with some flexibility. Notice they state..."Graduates attending schools not listed in the Medical Schools Recognized by the Medical Board of California must complete three (3) years of post graduate training in a program accredited by the ACGME. "

    That last paragraph is a positive nod to grads from schools out of the list. I do not see a reason to panic, instead of being allowed to apply for license after just one year of PGY for grads from approved schools, you have to do 3. Of course, the best course of action is to call them, but at face value it seems pretty lenient to me, it does not look like a strict application of the Ca list.

    Good luck to all.

    That would be great if that were the case.However what happens if a person who recently matched in Ga wants to get a training license for residency but is from an unapproved school. Will Ga grant him the license? Can he practice once he's done residency? I hope the law is exactly as it is written and only affects the length of training required to moonlight but that would be a pretty lenient adoption of the ca list.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    GA license

    This is not talking about a training license. It is talking about unrestricted license in the state of Georgia. Again, this state used to be 3 years post graduate training for all IMG's. Louisiana and Missouri are like this 1-US grads and 3 for IMG's.
