Question State Specific Residency Requirements

Hi,

Do the states have residency requirements? Because someone told me to contact the state medical board and ask what their residency requirements are. I thought I can apply to anywhere because my school is legal and recognized by WHO? I am kind of confused. Can anyone please help?

Thank you

To practice in a particular state you need to clear Step 3 along with the specific requirements of the concerned state board to get your license. The following links will help you more in understanding this

As regards your school's status.
'To meet the medical education credential requirements for ECFMG Certification, an IMG must:
be a graduate of a medical school listed in the International Medical Education Directory (IMED). The IMG’s graduation year must be included in the school’s IMED listing.'

Yeah! You can. As long as you are ECFMG certified by feb you're good. I thought you were asking about the state license!

I wonder if some confusion came about because you misunderstood licensing requirements for Medical residents as being a reference to simple residency (living in a certain place). There are no residency requirements for 'Medical residents'.
