A program focused on accelerating the process of revalidation of medical licenses so that our affiliated physicians who graduated abroad have the opportunity to practice their profession in the land of freedom, United States of America.
WHY WE CREATE READY TO HELP?
-There is a recognized deficit of doctors in the State of Florida. Official documents of the office of the Governor, the Department of Health and journalistic notes in general, confirm that it is a real fact and an estimated deficit of 7,000 medical specialists is estimated by 2025 and about 5000 family doctors by 2030, placing our State, among one of the States with the greatest need for medical professionals in the United States.
- According to the Department of Health of the State of Florida, there are more than 1000 locations registered as ACN (Critical Need Areas) including rural and urban areas in all counties, which have sufficient financial funds to maintain their expenses ( which could be destined for voluntary medical fees).
- In Solidaridad sin Fronteras we are about 9000 doctors who graduated abroad in Medicine Faculties of Universities accredited and recognized internationally, as well as legal residents or citizens of the United States and with several years of experience in the various disciplines of the medical area.
HOW CAN BE SUCCESSFUL?
We propose an expedited process to shorten the long, expensive, and difficult current process and to cover the deficit of doctors facing the State. This proposal consists of the following points:
1- Presentation of credentials and medical diploma to be verified by the ECFMG.
2- Presentation and approval of SPEX exam as proof of knowledge, which currently exists and is in force as a tool to reallocate licenses to certain types of doctors in the country and that was used in previous experiences.
3- Work under the modality of volunteering with a restricted license to the supervision of a licensed physician for a minimum period of one year and a maximum of 2 years.
Once the above requirements have been met, an “ACN License” type License will be granted and a period of no more than 5 years will be defined as the period to grant the license without restrictions.
Our claims are to replicate in a similar way, the two previous campaigns in which similar projects were approved to solve a temporary deficit of doctors faced by the State of Florida in 1994 and 2002.
We have about 5 years of experience in Tallahassee with the best sponsoring political representatives (Senators and Representatives) and renowned lobbyists to successfully complete this year's approval of the project through an EXECUTIVE ORDER OF THE GOVERNOR.
