Hello everyone,

I'm applying to the Medical Board of California to obtain a postgraduate training application letter (PTAL, previously known as California letter). There are new requirements for applicants who graduated after 1999. I'm having a problem with one of them because I did not have a 4 week clinical rotation in family medicine. This specialty was not available to us during medical school. However, I did lots of ambulatory work during my residency in Vietnam.

Please, any input as for ways to work around this would be much appreciated.
Thank you!


Hi, if you have done any of these rotations then it covers for the family medicine requirement: Community Medicine, Public Health, Ambulatory care medicine or Primary care medicine. Contact the mbc and ask them how they want that documented. Let me know if you need more help with the PTAL.
