Difference between eligibility to sit for step 3 and applyin

Postby Licensure Expert » 06 Mar 2005, 18:37

PLEASE NOTE:

PLEASE NOTE...ELIGIBILITY TO SIT FOR THE STEP 3 EXAM IS DIFFERENT THAN ELIGIBILITY TO APPLY FOR PERMANENT LICENSURE.

For eg. For TX, you can take the step 3 anytime, but you wont get licensed prior to completing 3 yrs of post graduate training.

Texas requires that you finish 3 years(For IMGs, and 2 years for US graduates) of post graduate training in the USA before being ELIGIBLE to even apply for permanent licensure.

7 year limit

Postby Licensure Expert » 06 Mar 2005, 18:43

7 Year limit for completion of all 3 USMLE Steps

Most state medical licensing boards require that you complete all 3 Steps of USMLE within a 7 year limit (Exceptions exist - contact each state individually).

The following states require completion of all 3 USMLE Steps within 6 years: Rhode Island

The following states require completion of all 3 USMLE Steps within 10 years: Maryland, Kansas, California

The following states DO NOT have any time limit for completion of all 3 USMLE Steps: Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Louisiana, Delaware

FCVS

Postby FCVS » 06 Mar 2005, 19:35

Decided to apply for the California Status evaluation letter. Paying $ 300 to FCVS to get my medical education verified. Looks like they will hold the verified file in their custody and for a small fee(less than $ 50, I hope), will send the report to any state when I finally apply for license after finishing my Residency.

the advantage of getting FCVS is when you want to apply to multiple states for licensure. If you are planning on staying in one single state, you can do it yourself and save $ 400.

US Virgin Islands - USMLE is not administered. Instead the SPEX exam is used to evaluate physicians.

Could you tell me some about the Oral proficiency interview test for the Maryland licensure? Any OPI forum site or review materials for the OPI? Thanks.

I wouldn't even bother with Texas unless your record is pristine. They are probably the most doctor-hostile state in the Union.

Reciprocity

Postby Reciprocity » 16 Feb 2006, 22:11

I have a NY license, but want to obtain other licenses. Are there reciprocity rules that can help me? I passed steps 1-3 within an 8 year 2 month period.

If not, would I have to take them again in sequence step1-step2-step3 or could I take step1 and step2 within a 7yr period after most recently passing step3? Confused? Me too
