    how important is this New york state approval thing?

    Advertisements



    can someone explain it to me? If the school is not approved by new york, it is probably not approved by california, either.

    so the graduates can't practice in those two states, and those few states requires the med schools have existed for certain amount of time.

    what else?

    2 different things.

    Nope...One can practice in NY even if school is not NY approved AFTER doing residency elsewhere. One cannot practice in CA regardless of where residency is done.
    NY approval is easier then CA (which is restricted), but think the schools have to have been around for at least 14-15 yrs.

    In addition to the above, there is a slightly-fluctuating list of states that follow the California list to some degree or other. For example, if a school isn't CMB approved, you will also not be doing residency in Indiana, New Mexico, Vermont, etc.

    so this ny state approval is not really that important at all?

    then does that mean, most caribbean medical schools graduate can practice in most states in the usa?

    MOST states? Yeah... assuming a residency match, which is no small assumption considering the fact that just over half of USIMGs do NOT match, and even more non-citizen IMGs do NOT match. If you can get over that hump, then Bob's your freaking uncle.

    However, not having CA approval does away with literally thousands of potential residency positions, so that doesn't help your cause any. Not having NY limits your USCE options in NY, which doesn't help. The best option for an IMG is to graduate from a school with 50 state approval and be a US citizen or permanent resident.

    This is a topic that is near and dear to me, because I only am working with half of that equation, myself. If you are currently at a CMB approved school, bust your butt to stay there unless you absolutely have no other alternatives. It matters.

    without ny state approval, then students who graduated from that particular school can't practice in new york. what else?

    where did you get the data that half usimgs don't match? I can't seem to find those kind of people online, i can't find their comments, messages, blogs, etc. there must be some.

    According to the NRMP match statistics only 50% of USIMGS matched in the match.

    BTW, is this the California medical board list:
    Welcome to the Medical Board of California - Medical Schools Recognized by the Medical Board of California

    yea, then my question is, if there are so many of them that are not matched, how come i can hardly find anything about them online? i am not saying that your data is wrong. it just makes me wonder.

    california board is a total joke. they list med. schools from all over the world, did they go to all the med schools around the world to verify them? no, they certainly haven't, never will. it is pure discrimination.

    i still don't get it why ny approval is so important? so the graduates can't practice in new york state, what else?

    Well its 50% that match from those that put match lists. In 2012, there were 922 that withdrew for some reason and then another 1,048 that didn't have a Rank List. I don't know what the 922 and 1,048 actually are so depending on whether or not those guys actually got positions then the overall percentage could be higher or lower.

    As for why you don't hear about them online, then I have no idea.
