South Korea South Korean Medical school not recognized in California medical board

Hello, my medical school is not on the recognized list by California medical board.
Does that mean I can't get PTAL?
Not able to do fellowship in California?..

Default No you cannot

If your medical school is not recognized by the Medical Board of California then you cannot get PTAL and you cannot do residency and you cannot do fellowship and you cannot practice in the State of California.
