Do we become licensed when we graduate and pass COMPLEX or do we get licensed after residency?
It's my understanding that you become a fully licensed physician upon successful completion of Step III of the COMLEX board exam. Also, I'm pretty sure this is taken during or after your first year of post-graduate training, which would be either internship or first year of residency.
If I'm wrong about this anyone, please correct me. Thanks.
depends on state requirements as well....check out www.gotconsult.com....awesome resource for practice details in every state....also how to work with medicare, etc
Yes, I took step III at the end of intern year. Once you pass that exam then you can apply for a license to practice.
You become board certified when you take the board certification exam during the last year of residency.
Some states require other exams as well.
Texas requires a Jurisprudence exam be passed before they will license you
Then you have to apply for a DPS number before you can apply for a DEA number in TX
Oregon requires an online pharmacy exam (open book)
Nevada requires that you apply for a physicians pharmacy dispensing license and that you go through FCVS
Off course all state require a federal background check and fingerprinting to be on file before they start processing.
Lol no one wants to comment on the 10 year necrobump????
It may be complex, but it's actually the COMLEX. Freudian slip?
Why is this thread still alive? OP was 10 years ago.
