Default California?

My understanding is that because of the regulatory environment in California, hands-on clinical rotations by non-licensed individuals who are not enrolled in medical school is against the law. I think that California is the only state that prohibits this but I could be wrong.

Sincerely,

Lori Ramos Winther
