Can any one tell me if a State Medical Licensure is a requirement for obtaining a LCA(for H1B)for the purpose of starting a Physician job in a particular state? Or is it enough if you just pass USMLE step3 examination. If you need a valid Medical Licensure, do you need to possess one from that particular state that you intend to work in or can you substitute it with a Licensure from a different state? Do you need Licensure for LCA or do you need to furnish it only when filing for INS for a H1B1? Also can you file for LCA or INS saying that you passed your USMLE step 3 Examination but are awaiting on the Medical Licensure. Thank you in advance.
