    Texas Eligibility Change - Post Graduate Training

    Advertisements



    I thought I had posted this some time ago, but have had a couple of questions come up in the last day or so. Texas changed the number of years of post graduate training required of IMG's - IMG's now must only complete two years of post graduate training, it used to be three. But the two years must still be consecutive and progressive. Texas statute 155.003(a)(5)(B)

    On a side note, I never really knew what the big deal was about TX when I was a student. However, now after having practiced there, its amazing how progressive the state really is for medical practice. Hopefully other states will follow as well, but I encourage people to look at the state when it comes time to open a practice.

    IMGs can do residency in texas. Google the texas residency programs and you'll see dozens of IMGs in different programs throughout the state.

    Post-doctoral training (also known as Post-Graduate Training and is designated PGY-x where X represents the number of years since graduation) is essentially residency and fellowship training that commences after you graduate with your medical degree.

    For example: If John were a 3rd year Family Medicine Resident then he would be in his third year of post-doctoral/post-graduate training and would be designated as a PGY-3
