Minimum Educational Requirement for Physician Licensure in Texas: The Texas Medical Association supports the following requirements for a full Texas medical license: one year of graduate medical education for graduates of U.S. and Canadian medical schools and two years of graduate medical education for international medical graduates. TMA further recommends all physicians be allowed to submit their medical license application after successful completion of one year of graduate medical education. The requisite training should be accomplished in accordance with the standards established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education- or American Osteopathic Association-accredited graduate medical education programs (Board of Trustees, p 20, A-96; amended CME Rep. 2-A-07; amended CME Rep. 7-A-17).
