Health Leaders Media

The Medical Board of California issued a stern warning Thursday to the state’s 120,000 physicians not to let international medical school graduates work in their offices treating patients.

“This practice is only lawful if the scope of the work is no more than a medical assistant would perform,” the board said in its July 1 newsletter. The board said it “continues to receive complaints” about the practice.
