    Some states allow you to bypass the regional board exams if you complete a GPR, I think NY is one of them. What if you want to go on to a specialty after completing a GPR? What if your specialty program is in a different state than your GPR? Do you then have to take the regional board exams?

    As far as I know, you'd still have to meet whatever licensure qualifications the state has.

    Usually you get temporary licensure in the state you are specializing in but only within the confines of the hospital/school. You would not be able to moonlight outside of the program in those cases unless the work took place at the program.

    Some states grant you a license when you complete a residency w/out having to take their board exam. NY is one of those I believe.
