    California requirements

    Recently, I've begun to see posts expressing a lot of anxiety about new regulations adopted by the California and Texas medical boards that might jeopardize the approval of Caribbean medical schools. I can only speak for California. California law doesn't require medical schools to support residency training programs or continuing medical education programs. There is no plan to add such wording to California law in the future.

    With respect to research programs, medical schools applying for recognition in California are asked to document how their school's mission statement and objectives include: "The role of research as an integral component of its mission, including the importance, nature, objectives, processes and evaluation of research in medical education and practice." We don't expect Caribbean medical schools to support world-class research campuses stretching for miles, staffed by an army of research professors, grad students and postdocs. We do expect to see the medical schools making it possible for their faculty to participate in research projects in addition to their teaching duties and for interested students to have the opportunity to assist the faculty in those projects. The Board will apply the requirement in a reasonable manner.

    Officials at AUC, Ross and St. George's universities are all aware of the California Medical Board's requirements. The Board has no hidden agenda against any school or region of the world or any intent to revoke the recognition of these schools or make it unreasonably difficult for new schools to qualify for recognition in the future. So please don't stress about California's research requirement.

    I know all that. I've been there, read all that myself, mutiple times.

    My point was to wonder about the proposed rule schanges for Texas in 2004. Their licensure page right now is the same it has always been, however the FAQ they have (which was copied in part somewhere around here), has been changed to include a 'may not be eligible' section which seems to reference the propsed rule changes. I am afraid this may reflect their assumption that these rules will pass without ammendment or scrutiny, thus causes a major SNAFU for those of us in med school now who wish to go back and practice in Texas.

    texas

    even in school still eligible for texas, the texas licensing folks apaprently are rather inconsistant and while occasionally people get licensed without a problem, sometimes their transcript is combed through ad nauseum to pick out the tiniest of details that no one ever would have thought was an issue and they make it very difficult. The word of mouth is, if you have any ohter state youre interested in, go there instead. However we are eligable in texas.

    One example of a probalme: one grad from my school applied and Texas denied licensure because their med school radiology rotation was done in an acgme approved program alright...but approved under medicine, not under radiology per se. Ross can't get licensed there however they are working on it. Once again this issue will only be resolved by proactive action by the schools, and that's being done.

    Hi,
    I have quick question. I am considering attending medical school in India (Kasturba Medical College). I was wondering if a school that doesn't require an MCAT score or a bachelors is considered by California. The school is affiliated with Loma Linda University here in southern California. But my concern is to know if I can work here in California if I go to this college.

    Australian Schools

    I wanted to know if I would experience any difficulties getting licensed in California if I attended an Australian medical school. Would there be any problems whatsoever?

    MCAT and LCME

    "Just thought I would share with all of you some info I found during some research I was doing. It has minimal bearing on the current conversation, but it is somewhat relevant.

    Most caribb schools try to follow the LCME standards of medical education in an attempt to emulate US schools. However, according to Barbara Barzanski of the LCME, whiether or not a school uses the MCAT as an admission standard does not affect their accredditation at all. In other words, US schools could completely eliminate the MCAT as a requirement and still maintain US accreditation. SO, the fact that some caribb or caribb like schools do not require students to have taken the MCAT does not neccesarily indicate a lesser quality of education."
