    There are some states that don't require any credits at all, but that was in 2010, and by now the list could be small. Most people have at least 1-2 years of post-secondary credits under their belt. But I'm not sure if credits are needed for residency or lisencure, or both? I'm wondering how all the pre-meds with no credits attain a lisence to practice?? I think everyone in an MD program should have some college/university.

    1st: I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that no state medical board will give you a medical license once you have posted in a public forum that you believe there are "52" states in the USA.

    2nd: Do not start medical school if you have not (or could not) completed a bachelors degree. This is not for the faint of heart people. This job requires a serious lifelong academic commitment.

    HOW MANY STATES OUT OF 52 STATES ACTUALLY REQUIRE ANY UNDERGRADUATE CREDITS HIGHER THAN 40 CREDITS?

    For those students interested in licensure in the state of Maryland these are the requirements. This information was retrieved directly from the Chief of physician licensure:
    "the core requirements for medical licensure in the state of Maryland for Foreign Medical School Graduates:

    1. Graduation from medical school
    2. Valid ECFMG Certification
    3. Successful completion of two years of ACGME accredited clinical postgraduate training (Residency)
    4. Passing score on all three Steps of the USMLE within a 10 year period and no more than 2 fails (if three or more, need an additional year of ACGME accredited training)
    5. Satisfaction of Spoken and Written English Language Competency Requirement"

    I specifically asked about the requirements for clinical rotations. The type of rotations (greenbook or bluebook) do not matter for cores or electives. As long as the student completes the above requirements.

    I called the Virginia state board and the conversation left me a little confused. Im still not sure if all the clinical rotations need to be greenbook or not

    I think the safe way about clinicals is to do all cores and electives G-book, even if this does take a few extra weeks.

    I would love to know which ACGME approved programs are willing to take international students. There is no list and very few people share accurate information. The whole research process is tedious - especially for the person who has no "connections".

    Then there is the money factor ... as you know certain programs/people charge a steep price just because they can.

    Also if the hospital is in a state like, idk, Louisianna, the chances of a student from Michigan or NJ to figure that out are slim - let alone go there.

    I am optimistic but it seems quite difficult - atleast from the perspective of a student attending a carribbean school.
