What brought their attention to this issue is that they have been seeing letters of recommendations from California physicians saying that an IMG has been assisting in the clinic and has had hands-on experience.

No more "legal" hands-on experience in the State of California before you are fully licensed.
Any info about Texas? Thanks Sabio.
