Non-ACGME accredited fellowships are mainly to improve skills and go back to the country you came from and become an expert, basically. They are not recognized for board exam purposes, but count as years of PostGraduate experience.

Search for specific programs, not specific states. Do a google search as they keep changing frequently

Re: General Medical Licensure Questions

I have a question if anyone can help me. I resigned from a residency 2.5 years ago because I was placed on probation for clinical performance issues. Now i completed a residency successfully and applied for a medical license. But the medical board has requested my file from my former residency and god knows what negative comments they made about me before I resigned. Should I be worried or consult a lawyer. Can they deny my application for a license.

Transitional year waiver and Licensure issues

Postby fmg photon » 23 Mar 2009, 00:20

I have matched into an advanced position in Radiation Oncology in U. Wisc. Radiation Oncology in U.S. is a five year program which includes first year of preliminary/ transitional rotation followed by four years of specific Radiation Oncology rotations. Since, I am a trained Radiation Oncologist from my home country [three year course] and also did one year of internship as a part of medical school degree, ABR has granted me a waiver from the Pg Y1 Preliminary/ transitional year requirement for the residency in Radiation Oncology. I can therefore join directly from Pg Y2.

My question is If I accept the waiver and not do the preliminary/ transitional year in the U.S. and directly join in Pg Y2, would it have any bearing on grant of Temporary educational permit and future practice license in any of the state medical boards. I plan to take my step III from boards like Connecticut which allow FMGs to take the exam without requirement of Pg Y1 like most FMGs do even before they apply for the residency match.

Thanking you in advance.
