    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.

    personally, i feels California law is complete insult to residency training program. Medical students from out side of caribbean are better prepared than US trained residents.
    COME ON YOU GOT TO BE JOKING.
    OR CA MEDICAL BOARD MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR FREE VACATION PACKAGE IN CARIBBEAN.

    CEARTAIN COMMENTS MADE BY PARK IS VERY IMMATURE. The evaluation process is very bias and discriminatory.

    I am very interested in knowing us medical students procedures skills. Medical school does not make u doctor at all only in residency.

    repost of prior material, for more information, click on the following link.

    I just found out that the california list did not list any of the DO schools, not even the one in california. however, we all know that there are plenty DOs practicing medicine in california. So as you can see, california medical board set up a list that even it itself intentionally violate.

    Great news, those bureaucratic at the California med. Board are finally changing.

    Those members read messages on this board, but when I told them that they used the wrong name for taiwan. they refused to change.

    So I notified the Chinese consulate in California like a few days ago. I just check that list again, taiwan is no longer " republic of taiwan." The speed is fast!

    so it shows that that board will only change if they are being pressured to.

    so people, let's united and fight for our equal justice!

    simple question?

    I wonder how California can disapprove a Caribbean Medical school based on their rules and regulations (MCAT, etc) but, then approve other medical schools that donít follow their rules and regulations for admission, donít have the same medical curriculum, and they donít even know how the schools work. I am talking about Cuban medical schools. Most of Cuban schools are approved by California and they donít meet their requirements because they donít have the same medical curriculum of LCME US medical schools. They are very good medical schools established for more than 100 years and with a really good reputation, but I doubt the medical board of California visits Cuba to inspect these schools. I would like to know why the California medical board is so inconsistent with the accreditation of foreign medical schools.

    I want to thank the California medical official for their time.

    That is what I have been asking many many months now.

    the board members read this site very often, they just do whatever they feel like.

    I have asked why they are treating north korea and cuban med. schools so differently. they are just abusing their rights, that is plain and simple.

    if they dont' change their rules by the time I graduate, I will organize all the other IMGs and we will sue the board for sure.

    we are not gonna sit here, and say goodbye to california for the rest of our life! this is about equal rights for all!

    Ciao! I am writing to you from Italy. I am currently practicing interventional radiology in Italy (extensive experience here of about 13 years and also a fellowship in California in 2003). I am married to an American citizen. We are in the process, with the American embassy here, of getting all of the paperwork done to get US citizenship.
    I have taken Step 1 of USMLE in 2005 and passed and in April of this year 2006, I took Step 2 CK in Milan. Now I am waiting to see if I have passed that one....when I know, I will try to schedule Step 2 CS in the US. If I passed, I want to schedule and take Step 3 before the end of the year so the next couple of weeks are crutial.

    My questions are....
    1.) What would you recommend as the best next step?

    2.) Is it best for me to wait for US citizenship (to be final) and then to look into Step 3 (as to avoid major visa problems)?

    3.) If I want to work in California (luckily my school is on the California approved list!) after completing ALL of the USMLE tests, what must I do to PRACTICE AS AN INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGIST in California? ECFMG verified my experience and my education already.

    4.) Do I have to do ONE YEAR as a general resident, PLUS a full residency program? Or do I just do (redo) the time for residency in my specialization? Does my past 13 years spent here practicing in Italy count as anything toward my practicing in California or to what degree does it or may it count?

    5.) How long AFTER passing the ALL USMLE tests until I could realistically be practicing as a US licensed, California licensed Interventional Radiologist?

    I don't know if you can help or if you know someone who can but...I had to ask.

    Thank you kindly,

    iduedelfini

    one of my friend is very upset about the future as already passed step i and two but with score of 78 and 82 with several attempts,now already completed seven years of period, applied several times for match but all in vain,having a good medical experience, but still programme directors are looking for good scores? not the candidates way of dealing with patient, other experiences. I do not understand why they have such type of thought getting a top score does not mean you are going to be a top doctor, which needs dedication, human values,.If any body can tell me whether is it possible to apply for residency to save a good doctor by not offering residency. thanks for your suggestions.

    California Law

    California law for medical practice does not make sense.

    If a student from a non-california approved medical school passes USMLE board exams, does his/her clinical rotations in the US hospitals, receives good letters of recommendations from the attendings, does his, or her residency in a US hospital (which means treating patients), WHY he /she can not practice in CA?
    If the standards are met (USMLE, US hospital, US letters of recommendations) then it should work.

    I say let's talk to a big law firm and prepare a strong case and see if we can modify the legislation there?

    i hear ya

    You are not the first one nor will be the last one with the same convincing argument (I have seen dozens over my years in VMD) unfortunately with no change. My take is...the more the California board reads messages like yours the more they get to enjoy it. Any changes will have to come from the legislature of the State of California, not an easy task. But keep trying.
