For many years, the Medical Board of California has maintained a list of approved medical schools. All U.S. and Canadian schools, and many foreign medical schools, are approved. The Medical Board also maintains a list of unapproved medical schools and those not yet approved or accredited. There is a "domino" effect to California Medical Board recognition of an off-shore medical school because other states routinely rely on California's stringent accreditation process and list of approved and disapproved medical schools.
The Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara (UAG) is a prestigious, private university in Mexico with a medical school that has been recognized by the Medical Board of California for over forty years. UAG medical graduates bring valuable Spanish language and cultural skills to California's diverse communities.
