You don't need California letter if you don't want to apply for residency or fellowship in California.

If you want to train in California then you have to do the California letter even if you are ECFMG certified.

Bump!

I also would like to know if a medical school must be on that list to apply for PTAL.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I believe so, but you can call the medical board of CA to confirm.
