§ 1325. Criteria for Approval of Clinical Training Programs for Foreign Medical Graduates.
Pursuant to Section 2104 of the code the following is the criteria for the approval of clinical training programs required of applicants under Section 2103 of the code who have not completed a one-year program of supervised clinical medical internship operated by a medical school.
(a) The medical school shall provide supervision equivalent to that given to undergraduate medical students.
(b) The medical school shall require evidence of successful completion of the formal academic curriculum of a foreign medical school.
(c) A screening examination in the form of National Board, Part I or Day I of FLEX or their equivalent shall be successfully passed by the applicant before admission to the program. The ECFMG examination or other examinations approved by the Council on Medical Education may be used for this purpose.
(d) The competence of each accepted student shall be individually evaluated so that the clinical training will correspond to the need of the student.
(e) The year of supervised clinical training shall include experience in each of the major clinical departments.
(f) In order to emphasize the educational nature of the experience for the student, and to clearly distinguish the year of supervised clinical training from an “externship,” or an internship, the hospital shall not remunerate the student and the student shall not accept any remuneration, from either the hospital or its medical staff, which could be construed as payment for house officer services.
(g) The medical school shall retain appropriate records describing the qualifications for admission, the time and duration of participation, and the achievement of the student at the completion of the year of supervised clinical training. A determination shall be made that the student is, or is not, competent to enter a program of graduate medical education.
(h) Individuals in this program shall be designated “Clinical Trainee” and wear badges so identifying them.
