There are actually lots of alternative career options (clinical or non-clinical options).

Dear dp from california

The primary obstruction of a medical license is the use of the ECFMG to enforce illegal demands to participate in corruption.

"Go along to get along", you get an 86.

If you refuse, you fail by one point permanently.

Medical Licensing has nothing to do with competence.

If you are targeted for official oppression, your family is harmed, and you live under oppression for learning another language and earning a medical degree outside the USA.

Medicine is not a profession today in the USA.

You have to make up your mind: do you sell your soul or live under official oppression hired by organized medicine?

There is no middle ground if you are demanded to participate in corruption for an 86 on the ECFMG.

That is my experience, and it stinks.

I am an IMG and I really don't know the details of the "official oppression" you are talking about. Can you eleborate please? I'm already in my early forties and my husband is encouraging me to take the USMLE to resume my practice here in USA.

I'm looking forward for your reply.

Thanks.

Corruption is viral. It spreads very fast.
Many IMGs get resideny through LORs of relatives who are doctors. For IMGs contacts in medical profession in US seems more important than anything else.

If you are a licensed physician in the Boston area, licensed but not board certified, contact me for ideas for some excellent, well paying and low stress physician positions. I am a physician not a recruiter.

The state Board took a fabricated conspiracy of some local enemies and took my DEA. The ABFP then takes Board certification away, it was only 2 years old, because of a permanent restriction on outpatient prescribing. Been looking for work intently for 6 months without success. Does ANYONE know anywhere on this planet I can get a job!!!?? Anything from professor down to janitor will do at this point as we are slowly starving. Tennessee and VA refused to give unrestricted license. I describe all this as worse than the kiss of the Antichrist.

Oh, they would not give me ANY license in other 2 states. So, I could not come to Boston. Confined to KY by a non-governmental agency at this point unless want to do something else than medicine or something NOT requiring a license.

ABFP says you cannot keep Board Certification if you have ANY permanent restriction on you license. Do you think that is fair?

I and my wife are physicians from India with more than 30 years clinical experience (mine in Anesthesiology and hers in OBGY). We are USMLE certified in 1999 but came now to USA on green card. Is there any chance of our getting a physician's job in USA? Most of the medical schools want their graduates to have passed Md within 3-5 years. So what is the scope for us as a physician or as a non clinical professional. We both possess more than 15 years of teaching experience (MD students, residents in India and Caribbean)
