I will be beginning PGY-1 in July. My contract states that I must "take all necessary steps to obtain state medical licensure" within 60 days of signing the contract. I've contacted my program regarding this and they've not gotten back to me. I also contacted the state medical board and was told that my program will apply for a "Residency Training Permit" on my behalf, and that I do not need to do anything further or apply for licensure. This representative didn't sound too confident in their response, however. Could anyone offer some useful info or advise? Thanks.
