New Law Changes Training Requirements for Medical Licensure in California Starting in 2020

A new law that takes effect in 2020 requires all physicians obtaining a California license to have at least three years of post-graduate training, rather than the current one year of training. 

While in training, all residents and fellows will be required to obtain a postgraduate training license that is valid for maximum of three years. After three years of training, residents and fellows will be required to obtain a full and unrestricted California medical license. The Medical Board of California has recently posted a podcast about the new training requirements.
