    ny license problems?

    Advertisements



    This is what I was told by an adminstrtor from another school about licensure in NY

    NY has some restrictions on all Foreign Medical Graduates (FMGs). NY will not license FMGs, but it has reciprocity. That means that if an FMG is licensed in another state for at least 2 years, they will be allowed to practice in NY under the other state’s license. FMGs can become fully licensed in NY if they have been licensed in another state for a total of 4 years or more, and they apply for license in NY as a relocating physician. During the Clinical Science component of medical school, students are allowed to do clinical rotation in NY for no more than 3 months.

    any ideas as to what this is about? I thought approved schools or those that pass usmle's, etc would have no problems??

    hey

    you just read what will occur for an unapproved school. notice the 3 month clause you read....it is another way of saying that you can do rotations for 12 weeks...which is what an unapproved school can do. i know for a fact an fmg can get a license in ny.

    anyone correct me if im wrong.

    I didn't think an FMG would have problems either, but that statement makes it sound like it is impossible unless you work for years someplace else...... i think it is very misleading

    Was this other school approved in NY? If not then what the administrator told you was correct for the NY unapproved school. The above statement does not apply to schools that have been approved in NY.

    Juni is correct. I actually looked into NY when I was doing my research on various schools prior to making my decision and that's what they told me for UNAPPROVED schools in NY. The school that you were talking to must be unapproved by the state of NY. I would consider looking into other schools if you are interested in practicing in the fine state of NY.

    You could be lisenced in NY, if graduated from SMU or any other approved foreign medical schools. As an IMG you need to do three yrs of residency though, to be lisenced.

    I was looking at the ny rules again and I see that it states you only have to do 3 yrs residency if you are from an unapproved school.... it doesn't say you have to be licensed in some other state first.....
    so that is good news

    you guys are correct, the restrictions are from unapproved ny schools. If your school is ny approved you can do more than 12 weeks clerkships, etc. Basically if you pass step 1 you can be licensed in NY.....english is not a requirement esp for the city

    ok then i'll say if i spoke latin american spanish i would be able to converse with a much greater percentage of patients than only being able to speak english. Speaking native spanish doesnt help me much bc i cant catch on to the puerto rican/latin american slang
