Prior to July 1, 1999, training certificates were not mandatory in order to engage in an accredited training program in Ohio. Therefore, the board cannot verify the training certificates issued prior to July 1, 1999. The NBME, NBOME, NBPME and the USMLE scores must be obtained directly from those entities.
