    Illinois License Requirements

    Advertisements



    Hello all,
    I have been trying to find an answer to this question but can not seem to find a solid answer, and was wondering if someone on here could help.
    Quite simply, does Illinois require all Greenbook CORES/and or electives to get a license? I know the state tends to be img friendly, so i was just trying to clarify this infomation as I start my rotations. Thank you.

    ACGME rotations in IL

    YES, we just rejected several applicants were IMGs completed certain rotations NOT in ACGME hospitals.
    Play it safe and complete 100% rotations in ACGME hospitals.

    Regards,

    Applicants for licensure or residency?

    Circadian - contact (phone / email) the IL licensing board for their current requirements. Sometimes the letter of State requirements is different from how they apply them.

    Latter question was for licensure
    AND...FYI, you require a license for residency

    You can confirm with these links:
    State of Illinois : Department of Financial and Professional Regulation

    Tipton- I was talking about a PERMANENT license, as in to practice after residency.
    NUHS- Thanks for the info. But that seems odd, i didnt think Illinois was that rigid, since many imgs match/practice there. Do you know by chance if it was just Greenbook CORES or electives too? If i did my rotations at JPH in Chicago, and it was only greenbook in family med, would everything else be fine since there is the family med residency there?

    IL License

    For sure 100% for Cores.....electives are electives BUT, depends what speciality you are getting yourself into, if you are interested in GS, then ALL electives in surgery should be at ACGME, especially if you are getting LORs from these electives...

    Hope my answer was helpful.

    Re: Matching
    I was secondary interviewer for at least 6 GS positions, and I have to tell you that if ANY of your rotations were not in ACGME, your file will be reviewed.

    Re: Licensing
    If you passed USMLE 3, did M3 cores in ACGME and residency R1-R5 was ACGME as well, you should get licensed, np.

    Residents have provisional / temporary licenses not full licensure to practice medicine. Requirements vary between both in every State. Nothing on Page 2 here Physician - Limited Temporary Licensure either requiring or describing the requirement of ACGME cores.

    I suspect this is your program's requirement rather than an IL requirement.
