    **medical licensure eligibility list**

    Advertisements



    Greetings All my name is J.L and I am a 4th year student about to graduate from Windsor and will be entering the match for the ERAS 2015 season, I have completed all of my exams (Step 1, CS,CK) performed okay (comparable to US/Canadian Grads) and have my results.

    For a long time now people have had many threads about medical licensure and many rumors have been spread, I got sick of all of this nonsense and therefore conducted my own research going through all 50 state statutes, rules and regulations on top of emailing individual boards when necessary. I have attached a list of my work to save everyone the trouble I have gone through

    For the record I am also a high school graduate who went directly to Windsor with no undergrad and have included the state limitations applicable to those like myself. I understand many people have doubted premed students, but each person is an individual so please do not make generalizations and give unfounded advice like I have seen on this forum.

    If you doubt my credibility you are within your rights to do so, this information was created to the best of my ability; posting all of my references/ state emails would be cumbersome therefore I have not done this. Good Luck to everyone, especially high school graduates, you are welcome.

    **Update 9/24/14 Florida is possible for Licensure see the post below, GEORGIA may allow a RESIDENCY but follows the California list for Permanent Licensure (makes us ineligible for perm license)

    Thank you for compiling this list. As far as Florida is concerned, there is an error. Windsor students can (from my knowledge) earn residency and licensure in Florida. This is standard and without any loopholes.

    yes, Florida is acceptable for licensure and I had interviews there. The only exception for florida is that we cannot do regular clinical rotations. But otherwise I greatly applaud your effort for making this much needed file. this is worth stickying

    That's what I thought as well but I'm finding out that some of the smaller schools are indeed offering rotations in Florida. USESOM and Washington being two.

    Here is what I have obtained from the florida laws (ht tp : / / w(x3). leg. state .fl. us), Yes it appears you can get a perm license in florida if you satisfy statute 458.314 (Certification of foreign educational institutions). I think I made a mistake because this state requires: (e) For any applicant who has graduated from medical school after October 1, 1992, has completed the equivalent of 2 academic years of pre professional, postsecondary education, as determined by rule of the board, which shall include, at a minimum, courses in such fields as anatomy, biology, and chemistry prior to entering medical school. (taken from statute 458.311)

    So it is technically okay for perm licensure but will be difficult and requires premed credits

    I will email them to see if premed requirements need to be met for residency but for those who have them it will be OK FOR RESIDENCY/PERM pursuant to 458.314. I apologize for the mix up I assure you that everything else was well reviewed.

    yeah technically the state of florida will still allow you to do rotations but it's under the strict requirements that you've passed step 2 ck and that the admin sends a letter to the board stating that you're eligible for it based on your cores and step 2 ck

    So if someone really wants to do it in FL, they just need to have passed their cores and CK? Sounds like it's just for electives, then, right?

    I am currently doing an elective in Florida under FIU Herbert Wertheim School of Medicine, I did pass CK but it was not a requirement for the program, I think if you are approved by a Florida Medical School the state will pay no attention, AUA & SABA are known for doing cores in Florida so who knows, electives should be fine regardless as its lenient in most states.

    You are also eligible to apply for license in New Mexico by endorsement. Meaning that if you worked in another state for three years as a fully licensed physician, your record is clean, and you are board certified.
