Default States that follow the Medical Board of California's rule

Hi guys,

I am having a difficult time obtaining a concrete list of states that follow the California rule. I even called the medical board of california who did not know what states follow them. The internet search isn't helping either as I get a different list in every site.

If anybody can help me with this, it will be great. I believe there are 20 states that follow california.

what do you mean by follow california rule? can you elaborate?
each state has its own policy but they follow california's list of accepted schools outside US. but despite having diffrnt policy, most of them are similar.

I was talking about california's rule on post graduate training in california. They have their own list of approved international medical schools and only students from those schools can apply. There are afew other states that have adopted that list and will only allow students from those schools to apply.
