General Medical Licensure Questions

Postby Licensure Expert » 25 Jan 2004, 01:16

General Medical License Questions - General Requirements: The requirements vary widely and may change also. :arrow: :roll:

1) Exams: In general, to get a state medical license, you must have passed USMLE Steps 1,2,3,CSA and received the ECFMG Certificate.

2) Attempts: Most States require that you pass the Individual USMLE steps within 3 attempts each

3) Time Limit: Most states require that you pass all USMLE steps within a 7 year period.

4) Internship/Residency requirements: Several States require one, two or three years of US Postgraduate training before you can qualify to apply for their State License.

5) Medical Jurisprudence exam: A few States have a written Medical Jurisprudence test that you must pass before they can give their license. :(

How to Use this Forum

Postby Ram123 » 09 Feb 2004, 11:44

This forum is slightly different from other forums. You cannot write new Posts (new threads), but can reply to exising posts. So this helps to keep topics related to each state license in one place.

Again you cannot write new posts, but you CAN post replies under each existing post(state)

Indiana medical license

Postby Hemaa » 03 May 2004, 20:49

Indiana Health professions bureau is the cheapest and easiest to apply to. you will get a license in 2-3 months. But indiana law says that you should have finished two years of residency in theUSA to apply...
