Massachusetts Medical Licensure

You must pass all 3 steps of the USMLE within 6 attempts each and within a 7 year time period. If you are a US graduate, you are eligible to SIT for the USMLE Step 3 exam after 1 year of Internship (Postgraduate training). For International Medical graduates (IMGs), 1 year of postgraduate training is required before you can take the Step 3 test.

Permanent medical licensure: US graduates, are eligible to apply for permanent medical license after completion of 1 year of GME / postgraduate training (Internship, Residency or Fellowship). International Medical graduates (IMGs) require completion of 2 years of GME / postgraduate training to be eligible to apply for permanent medical license.

For permanent licensure, you may be called for a possible interview.

limited license application query

Postby gt » 28 Jan 2005, 07:59

Hi
I have a question regd the limited license app. for MA
What should be indicated under premedical education/ premedical school?
I'm from India, and there is no separate undergrad requirement before med school. Should I indicate that junior college (11th/12th) covered the premed subjects, or that the medical school curriculum covered the premedical and preclinical requirements?
Thanks for your help!
