    I have 2 questions:

    1. If I take Step 3 in Georgia (where I'm doing my residency), can I still get a New York State license? If not, what does it take to get a New York State license?

    2. When I take and pass my Internal Medicine Boards, will I be board certified in all 50 states or do I have to do something separate for each state?

    As you can tell, I really want to come back to NYC after residency and am not sure how the medical licensure works.

    Thank you so much!

    Don't know the exact answer to your question, but here's the web address for NYS Education Law - Medical. They'll probably have what you're looking for.

    Those were really helpful. It looks like once you pass Step 3, all you have to do is pay the fee to get a NYS license.

    Does anyone know about the board exam?

    Thanks again.

    I believe that the IM boards (or any other specialty boards for that matter) are accepted through out the country, everyone takes the same type of exam. Go to <a href="http://www.abim.org" target="_blank">www.abim.org</a> to check.
