Hi guys,

- I'm an IMG
- I'm a resident in my home country (PGY-4)
- Currently I'm a "research fellow" in a Cali University, and I'll be holding this position until I'll be done with my residency in 2015.
- I don't wanna go back to my country. This is THE key point.

I've been reading several States licensing requirements, all of them mention "post-graduate training", so I desume that it means either residency training or a fellowship program, right?

If they require two years of an ACGME accredited post-graduate training this means that one meets the criteria to be licensed just getting a fellowship position. Am I correct?

In particular, if Cali fellowship programs accept PTAL instead of an unrestricted license (I didn't ask yet), after two years of such a fellowship, you are eligible to be licensed.

Well...please let me know what you think.
