Greetings,
Great news: because of a US Study published in July 2015 which states "licensing requirements that prevent qualified immigrants from finding employment in their chosen profession affect not only the immigrant workers themselves, but also consumers (pg. 39)" and that "board-certification" may in fact negatively impact consumer patients (pg. 46), it is very important to share your stories so your voices will be heard!

In the state of California, State Senator Josh Newman District 29 who is Chairman of a newly formed subcommittee which will review recommendations of the California Opportunity Act of 2017, requiring the Department of Consumer Affairs to create a task force to study and issue a report regarding the licensing and workforce integration of foreign-trained professionals

State Senator Newman represents the 29th District of California. As a registered voter, please contact his office to share your support in licensing more qualified foreign medical graduates to become physicians in the state of California!
