I'm at AUA filling out ERAS and trying to find out the states I cannot apply to as a graduate from AUA. Assuming all greenbook cores/electives, the states I cannot apply to are Cali, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alaska--can anyone fill me in on any others? Alabama? Anything else?

you can apply to all those states if you want.. no one will stop you, heck you'll even be invited for interviews, I know people who did just that. the problem will come during match time because you can't match into those programs since you can't get licensed to practice medicine in those states.

check out the AUA forum on valuemd for more states that don't recognize the school and won't give you a license. the list is pretty substantial and is growing.

I looked up and down, no such list exists in vmd, since you saw this list you can tell me where specifically in vmd it exists.

Best to check the state out before ERAS. Don't waste your time and money through ERAS unless you are sure. Many program directors don't know what schools are accepted or not.

Arkansas grandfathered in those in residency when they adopted the list. Mississippi does not know what to do - they are rethinking their decision as we speak. They have not made any provisions for those in residency right now.

Arkansas has a federal lawsuit filed against them by AUA.

TN will take you for residency and won't give you a license.. same goes for Texas. Texas is a huge mess - stay away from them!!!!!

Some of the states listed above will license you have you are board certified. Example: Idaho after board certification for 5 years, Oregon will consider a license after board certification. New Mexico will license you have board certification and no incidents after practicing in another state for 2 or 3 years.

New York definitely accepts applications from AUA grads. At my program in Queens, one of my fellow interns graduated from AUA.

Considering the rumors flying around regarding the use of the CA list, can you please post any links regarding information that these two states follow the CA list. I can't find any. Let's not add to the rumor mill.

Here is the link for the Mass requirments:
http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/education-careers/graduate-medical-education/freida-online.shtml

Here is the link for the ND requirements:
http://www.ndbomex.com/MD_Req.htm

The AMA website has links to all 50 states' medical boards. I suggest that anyone interested in practicing who is considering going to a school that is not in the "Big 4" check it out.
http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/education-careers/becoming-physician/medical-licensure/state-medical-boards.shtml

Georgia is still considering using the CA list, so I would be cautious with that state. Kansas will grant a license once the school has been around for 15 years.

You can add Missouri to the list of friendly states.

And in case anyone is interested, the highest number of calls/emails from recruiters I have seen looking for PCPs is all from states that follow the CA list. Maybe Obama should take a look at that to solve the PCP shortage...

I'd like further confirmation as well...every other source I've seen indicates mass is a case by case basis...can an informed person chime and and let us know what you think about mass?
