Hey guys, just filling out this mountain of paperwork to start in July, going through the state medical license application. They're asking about ever been arrested, charged, or convicted of crime. During undergrad & beginning of med-school I was arrested for misdeamor and I think charged, went to court, but never convicted, charges dropped.This was 5 & 6 years ago in two different states different from the state I'm going to do residency. Really not inclined to divulge this info to the state board and my program. Have recently obtained a finger-print clearance card in the state I'm in now for pedestrian work while going through match, etc so I figured these charges were not found, dissapeared, or just not a concern. Does anyone know how extensive the state board background check is ? or know of anyone ever in a similiar siti, and what happened to them ? Or of someone who got denied licensure because of some prior criminal history ? I know to be caught in this siti would be worse then to admit, I just really don't feel this info would be revealed.
