How much PGY(post graduate training) do I need?

Physician Licensing No Comments

Post Graduate Training Requirements

This week, we continue discussion in our eligibility series. Previously, we talked about the 7 Year Rule and how this differs from the 10 Year Rule, both of which can quickly put up road blocks to a physician medical license.  Your next question should be, “Do I have enough post graduate training to qualify for this state’s license?”

Of course you can call us at any time with specific questions on a particular health care license or for an eligibility check at no cost at 888-551-2140.

With each state medical board, there will be a required amount of Post Graduate Training (commonly referred to as PGY or PGT).  This can include your internship, residency, and fellowship.  Training must be done through an ACGME accredited program, and in most cases the training years must be completed in the same specialty. There is some variation on the number of years required by each board, and this will also differ for physicians who completed medical school outside of the U.S. and Canada.

Please keep in mind that these are firm requirements from the medical boards.  This means that if a physician has not received enough years of training to be eligible, they will either have to go back and do the required training or choose a state with a lower requirement.  As always, please feel free to call us at 888-551-2140 with any questions or clarification.  We’re always happy to review your situation and provide advice at no cost.
