    You can apply for fellowship and then practice in an academic place for 5 years till you get full license. Otherwise you will have to your training all over again

        Contact the State Medical Board of the State in which you wish to practice. They will be able to guide you through the process.

        As an example, I found this information for NY: http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/med/medlic.htm Look at key words such as "Foreign Educated", "Education Requirements", "Licensing Requirements", etc.

        (Non-accredited will mean not accredited in the US)

        "Graduates of Non-accredited Medical Programs
        Satisfactory completion of the following:

        A curriculum of not less than 32 months (4 academic years) in a medical program recognized as an acceptable educational program for physicians by the appropriate civil authorities of the country in which the school is located and receipt of the degree of Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, or the equivalent as determined by the Department. You must complete the final year of medical education at the school that awarded you the degree.

        A satisfactory proficiency examination. Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)* certification will satisfy this requirement."



        This* could perhaps be your starting point:
