New York Medical Licensure

New York Medical License

STEP 3: You must pass all 3 steps of the USMLE within 0 attempts (no limits) each and within a 0 year (no limit) time period. If you are a US graduate, you are eligible to SIT for the USMLE Step 3 exam after 0 year of Internship (Postgraduate training). For IMGs, 0 years of postgraduate training is required before you can take the Step 3 test.

New York State LICENSE: - Office of the Professions requires that you submit your permanent medical licensure application at the same time you apply to sit for USMLE Step 3 exam. You have to be either a US citizen or Green card holder / Permanent resident to apply for permanent medical license in New York. You must also have 3 years (1 year for US grads) of post graduate training - Internship / Residency / Fellowship to be eligible to apply for permanent licensure.

You dont need these requirements to simply sit for USMLE step 3 and get a limited license (Supervised medical practice/Training) for Residency training.

If you want to practice medicine independently and are not a US citizen or Permanent Resident, you can apply for the "3 yr Limited license for practice in Underserved areas"

Fee for license application is $ 735, fee for limited medical license is $ 105.

California, Texas, New York and florida medical license

Postby Licensure Expert » 06 Mar 2005, 18:25

Comparison between California, Texas and florida licenses

You will not get Texas license easily for 3 reasons:

1) Texas is one of the 3 tough states. The other 2 are CA and FL. Each of these take 6-9 months to process your license and cost a lot. CA= $ 1000(application fee 550 + License fee $ 600), TX = $1300 (application fee 800 + License fee 500), FL = Exact amount unknown...about $ 1000.

2) Texas requires that you finish 3 years(For IMGs) of post graduate training in the USA before being ELIGIBLE to even apply for permanent licensure. PLEASE NOTE...ELIGIBILITY TO SIT FOR THE STEP 3 EXAM IS DIFFERENT THAN ELIGIBILITY TO APPLY FOR PERMANENT LICENSURE. For TX, you can take the step 3 anytime, but you wont get licensed prior to completing 3 yrs of post graduate training.

3) Esp for Texas, you have to give a written Jurisprudence test prior to getting licensed. This test is given only at Austin, Tx, therefore, you have to travel there, prepare for the test(books cost $ 150) and get more than 75% of the 50 questions correct to get licensed.

NEW YORK: I believe that you need to be a Green card holder or US citizen to get PERMANENT licensure in New York. For IMGs, the only loophole is that if you work in an underserved area, you can get a "special Permanent License". Please check on this to be sure on their website.

Thanks! Last Question... Can I renew that 3 year limit license if it expires? and Can I take the Step 3 and apply for the state license around 6 months after I take the exam?

Thanks for the useful information. I would also like to know information related to Medical Malpractice Law in New York City. I have a friend who is planning to practice medicine in New York City.
