Certificate Regarding Medical Education Credentials

Hi. I have a question about the section of the Medical Education Credentials in the ECFMG website regarding this part:

Note Regarding Ineligible Practitioners: Graduates not eligible for admission to the exams or for ECFMG Certification include, but are not limited to: Graduates licensed only in stomatology, ayurvedic or homeopathic medicine, or those awarded only the diploma of Physician-Epidemiologist-Hygienist, Physician-Biochemist, Physician-Cyberneticist, Physician-Biophysicist, Licensed Medical Practitioner, or Assistant Medical Practitioner.

Does anybody know what exactly do they mean about Licensed Medical Practitioner? The ECFMG office is closed for today, so I have nobody to ask .

Info Disregard

If you have an MBBS, MBChB, BMBS, MB BChir, BMBCh, MBBCh, BM, or BMed. then you don't need to worry about that statement.

I guess that there are certain countries in which a two or three year college graduate can be designated as "licensed medical practitioner" but in the sense that person is not a doctor or a graduate of "medical school".

Default Thanks

Thank you so much Step Taker for clearing that up. Since I couldn't find a specific definition for a "medical practitioner", it kind of freaked me out a little .
