    State Licensure

    Great Post By Sree Cheruku

    Hopefully it sheds light on licensing issues....and states you have questions about. Arkansas uses the CA list now.

    I've been meaning to post this stuff for a while, but I'm lost in Step 2 study right now.

    Here's my preliminary list. Not extensively fact-checked yet.
    States with weird rules
    1. Kansas
    ‐Medical school has to be in existence for 15 years before licensure is granted.
    ‐This rule does not apply to residency applicants.
    2. New Jersey
    ‐At least four weeks of each core rotation has to be Greenbook.
    ‐No clinical rotations possible in state for foreign schools except SGU and Ross.
    3. New York
    ‐60 credits of college required
    ‐Only the core rotations done within New York State have to be Greenbook.
    ‐Letter of Eligibility required before participating in clinical rotations
    ‐Special permission from the board required before participating in away electives.
    ‐Only 12 weeks of away electives permitted – all must be Greenbook.
    4. Nevada
    ‐Technically, AUA students cannot be licensed here because they follow the California
    list, but if you have all greenbook cores and greenbook electives, you can appear before
    the board and plead your case.
    Restricted States
    5. California
    ‐AUA is not California approved, so graduates cannot complete residency or be licensed
    here. California approval is generally not completely retroactive, though it can reach
    back a few years, as in Saba’s case.
    6. Alaska
    ‐Follows the California list. AUA students cannot be licensed here.
    7. Tennessee
    ‐Follows the California list. AUA students cannot be licensed here.
    States requiring all Greenbook rotations (cores and electives)
    8. Delaware
    9. Texas
    ‐Schools which are on the Texas list (SGU and Ross) have automatic licensure approval.
    Schools which are on the California disapproval list (SMU) have automatic licensure
    disapproval.
    ‐AUA is on neither list, so you must plead your case before the board individually.
    ‐Requires 60 college credits
    ‐Texas no longer requires students to complete an elective rotation in neurology
    10. Pennsylvania
    -They don't like DO rotations

    States requiring Greenbook cores
    11. Alabama
    ‐Must pass Step 3 in three attempts.
    12. Arkansas
    13. Connecticut
    14. District of Columbia
    ‐Must pass Step 3 in three attempts.
    15. Massachusetts
    ‐Two years of college required.
    16. Oklahoma
    ‐Must pass each Step in three attempts.
    17. Oregon
    ‐Must pass each Step in three attempts.
    18. Illinois
    19. Michigan
    ‐Temporary license for residency also requires Greenbook core rotations.
    20. Utah
    21. Virginia
    ‐Family Medicine is not considered a core, and does not have to be Greenbook.
    States which accept Bluebook rotations
    22. Arizona
    23. Colorado
    24. Indiana
    25. Iowa
    ‐Must pass the first two Steps in six attempts and Step 3 in three attempts.
    26. Montana
    27. Nebraska
    28. North Dakota
    29. Ohio
    30. Rhode Island
    31. South Carolina
    32. South Dakota
    33. Vermont
    34. West Virginia
    ‐Must pass each Step in three attempts.
    35. Wisconsin
    36. Wyoming
    37. Maryland

    ‐Must pass east Step in four attempts.
    States which do not scrutinize clinical rotations as long as 3 years of residency are completed
    38. Florida
    39. Georgia
    ‐Requires 60 credits of college.
    40. Kentucky
    41. Maine

    ‐Must pass Step 3 in three attempts.

    TN = Yes, Residency (temp license) , No (Perm License).

    If you do a search on vmd there are some threads out there on the topic. TN is not granting Perm license to all school that are not on the Cali approved list. So that means AUA, MUA, Windsor and especially SMU (Cali disapproved list). AR is also implementing the Cali list...so the same can be said for them.

    What about Maryland? Is it possible to get a permanent license?


    I did some research, but I still can't get a definite answer.

    1) "States that aren't as difficult, with regards to "GREEN" rotations are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas (be ready to fight), Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming."

    2) I went to the State Medical License Requirements' website and the only requirements that I see are: 3 attempts per step, must complete USMLE Steps 1, 2, and 3 within ten (10) years of passing the first step, and 1 year of Postgraduate Training Requirements.

    3) If the type of residency makes a difference it would be family practice. Of course it ultimately depends on the Steps and matching.



    I will be going to Carbondale in January. I was just curious about Maryland.

    Thanks in advance and have a great week ahead.
