    Florida

    This may be a dumb question... but is MUA approved by Florida? I do not see that listed anywhere on the MUA website, but I have just always sort of assumed it was. Is that true?

    From my understanding MUA does not have California, and thus not Michigan and I believe 3 others that I don't really care about... (Kansas, Indiana, and North Dakota?) Is that all?

    MUA is not FL approved for clinicals at this time, residency however is no problem. We have grads there too. Michigan is no problem either and we have many grads there if you look at the match lists. Kansas is a 15 year rule. IN and ND might have issues. Check your state med board for more info as rules change as is the case with TX, AR and MS.

    My twin sister has done residency in Florida without issue. She had no problems getting a FL residency license because she did all Greenbook clinical rotations.

    Myself, my sister and my best friend all graduated from MUA in 2006 and now have unrestricted Florida medical licenses.

    Would you mind explaining the "Greenbook Rotations?" There are also blue rotations I believe?

    Also did you happen to know how many were in your graduating class back in 2006?

    Greenbook means that where you do your rotation, there is a residency/fellowship in that speciality at that hospital.

    For example, your Internal Medicine rotation would be considered greenbook if there were residents of that hospital doing their internal medicine residency there.

    Bluebook is when family medicine residents rotate through those specialities but there are no residents for just that speciality. For example, you are doing a surgery rotation, there are residents, but they are Family medicine residents with you, but no actual surgical residents.

    Hope that helps.
