Are you sure they are illegal? I would assume as long as you are covered by malpractice insurance it would be fine. Main thing is they don't want people doing dangerous stuff and escape later without paying victims of malpractice.
If it is a law can you provide a link. Most likely it is just a policy where the government or state universities try to stop foreign doctors to gain experience.
