    Medical Licensure and Greenbook vs Non-greenbook/Bluebook rotations

    Advertisements



    Hi

    Does anyone have a list of states which accept bluebook rotations? I am currently with AUA and trying to do all the greenbook roations but the wait time extremely long. I was wondering if I do bluebook rotations, I can finish all of them without a loooong waittime. But I know some states do not accept bluebook rotations. I was trying to find it out by calling all the states. I was wondering if someone has already done that and have some information about it. It will be really helpful and I am sure a lot of people are in the same boat.

    Could you please post which state and their requirements for licensure regarding bluebook and greenbook.

    Thank you so much.

    It's a mess

    It's important to differentiate between states that require greenbook cores/electives for limited/training license (residency), and those that require it for full licensure (for an IMG, usually post-residency).

    There are only a few states that have rotation requirements in order to enter residency training. TX, CA, VA, MA, MI are the only states that I'm aware of which require this. Other states to be cautious of include OR, DE, NY, NV, and FL.

    I wish I could say that list was exhaustive. I've only investigated the 25 or so states in which I'm interested to live after medical school.

    The list of states that require greenbook for full licensure is likely to be longer - but there are often ways around this requirement. For example, most states have a policy of awarding license to anyone who is a board certified/practicing physician in another state for a certain number of years. The most notable exception is CA, which has no such provision.

    The only requirement that Illinois has for rotations is that the core rotations (Ob, Peds, Surgery, IM, Psych) are done at hospitals with written affiliation agreements with your school. You'll be required to show a copy of the affiliation agreement, your faculty evaluation from the hospital, and a signature from the hospital administrator. There is no requirement that the hospital have an ACGME residency in the specialty of the rotation.

    Like with all things, be sure to double-check with the primary source.

    When people say California is a special case etc, does this mean that even if your school is on the California Medical Board recognized list, and you have already done your residency elsewhere (non Greenbook), and got licensed in that other country, that you can't get licensed in CA?
