    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,
    I thought this might be helpful for those of you looking for a general website that has links to all the state boards and requirements for licensure.

    I heard that a number of states limit the number of weeks that clinical rotations may be done outside of the university. However i can't find it mentioned in California

    I know states such as New York only allow a maximum of 12 weeks. Is there a website I can find the requirements for every state regarding elective rotations?

    Nj

    Off the top of their head does anyone know what requirements NJ has in terms of undergraduate education for a NJ state license?

    Number of college credits in sciences (chem, physics, bio)?

    thanks

    I haven't found a general website that has listings of all the states and their requirements with regard to medical school clinical rotations. However, I did call the state licensure/ board of NY, Penn, Georgia and Illinosis as I was planning to do rotations here as a foreign medical school student.

    1. As far as I know from what I was told is that NY has that 12 week limitation (in fact you cannot do a residency in NY if your medical school does not hold its clinical rotations in it's own country in excess of that 12 week).
    2. Penn has a law that states foreign medical students cannot do any clinical rotations in Penn and under the law the supervising clinican can be fined if he/ she does break the law. But you can do residecy and get licensed there.
    3. Georgia board has no jurisdication over medical school rotations done in Georgia weather as a U.S. or foreign medical student. So you can do medical school rotations all of it here. You can do residency here in a ACGME program (contact the individual programs to find out their requirements), and then get licensed.
    4. Illinosis, I also believe has no jurisdiction on medical school rotations from U.S. or foregin medical schools. However there is a five attempt restriction on licensure. Meaning you have to have taken and passed all your USMLE exams (step I, step II CK, Step II CS, and step III) within five attempts total to get licensed there. But there is no state restriction on doing a residency there.

    Hope that helps.

    F.Y.I. The info stated above was from phone calls to the boards of the states listed in the last month that I made. Please verify for yourself if you are interested in doing clinical rotations in any of these places, as things can change over time and different people may give you different info.


    Also, let me know if you found any info on other states or the ones I have mentioned with regard to clinical rotations, residency and licensure.

    thanks
