Those schools that are neither approved by Indiana or California (and not on the disapproved list) are reviewed on a case by case basis.  Applicants may be required to make a personal appearance before the Board if their school is disapproved or unapproved. The Board uses ECFMG as a tool to determine whether those schools are LCME equivalent. On May 22, 2008 the Board recognized the California Medical School Standards as equivalent to LCME standards as required for approved foreign medical schools in Indiana. 

Because the California standards meet LCME equivalency the Board then adopted the California Medical Board's Recognized and Disapproved lists for use when processing applications.  Below you will find a link to both the California Recognized list and Disapproved List.
