I am a physician (G.P) with an unrestricted license to practice medicine in Puerto Rico.
I do not have the Steps (previously attempted them).
Is there any way a can practice medicine in California with my license from here (reciprocity)?
Please let me know and feel free to contact me.

As far as I know you need to have ECFMG license in order to practice medicine in US.
Probably there are some other ways and programs, but I don’t know about them.
If you have any other questions, please ask.
BTW, how is the standard of living of a family physician in Puerto Rico?
IMGs (International medical Graduates) must go through ECFMG if they wish to practice medicine in the US. Visit: ecfmg dot org
If you graduated from medical school in Puerto Rico, you are not considered an IMG. No ECFMG certification is required if this is the case; however, I don’t know about reciprocity between Puerto Rico and California. Just wanted to clarify that Puerto Rican medical schools DO NOT produce IMGs.
@carrie: Thanks for the information. I guess that Puerto Rican medical students still need to pass the steps in order to get licensed for practice (like any other American graduate).
