    Texas, residency?

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    Can we apply to Texas for residency? I have read on this forum that it's a case to case basis, but i think that's for license. I only want to know about applying there for residency.

    Thank you

    Anyone can apply, but some institutions have internal policies that will not allow them to contract with individuals who are graduates of medical schools not listed on the Texas Medical Board's substantial equivalence list. The reason for this is that the programs must report to the Texas legislature the number of residency graduates that have obtained a Texas license - the outcome can have an impact on the funding formula for the residency.

    For those that want to see the list here is the link to the substantial equivalence list. There are many schools that are not on the list: AUC, SGU & Ross are on the list not AUA, Windsor & several other schools.

    But, just because a school is not on the list does not mean you cannot get a license. If you are board certified the board by law cannot consider your education. If you are not board certified you can go through the substantial equivalence process.

    Anyone can do a residency in texas. The question is about getting a license, which you can, as clearly stated above.

    "states no one likes to be in"... you are a beggar, not a chooser. Get used to taking what is left over, smile, and say thank you.

    you're right. just feels good to know that my options aren't limited and that i have the potential to apply to more states than what is shown on this forum. but yeah totally agreed

    It is what it is. The only thing that controls the limits of your options is the performance on your Steps.
