Medical Licensure Linked to Practice Location or Specialty Shortages: Licensure should not be linked or used to address practice location or specialty shortages. Licensure of all physicians in Texas should be under the aegis of the Texas Medical Board. Completion of one year graduate training in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or an American Osteopathic Association accredited graduate education program for U.S. graduates and two years U.S. graduate training for international medical graduates in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or an American Osteopathic Association accredited graduate medical education program is a reasonable component of licensure requirements (Council on Medical Education, p 91, A-94; reaffirmed CME Rep. 4-A-04; amended CM-PDHCA Rep. 2-A-14).
