Answer

We advise all our US and Canadian clients to verify with their state medical and dental council about registration in their state. We have had American and Canadian students who qualified and proceeded to write their USMLE exams and thereafter gained approval to practice in their chosen state. Yet each state will have it's own policies so it is best that you contact your state department to confirm.

For example, California will not accept Romanian qualifications at the time of this writing (2007). However Texas will.

The Romanian faculties we work with are ECFMG (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) registered and listed on the WHO world wide database of accredited medical universities. US students will be able to write the USMLE exams.
