    The following states require AOA approved training in order to be licensed and practice:

    FL *
    MI *
    NV
    OK *
    PA *
    WV *

    The ones with the * mean that you must complete a 1-year AOA internship in order to practice.

    I believe that is the residency program is dually accredited (by the ACMGE and the AOA) then you do not need to complete a separate internship as your first year of residency will fulfill this requirement.
