New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. – July 19, 2022) – US-based nationally accredited e-clinical training platform, ‘Advanced eClinical Training,’ has launched its affordable, accessible, and convenient online health certification courses for pre-medical students. Its mission is to provide pre-medical students with valuable certification and expert clinical training before they sit their industry certification exam. It helps them get the essential healthcare experience required for their vocational aspirations in the industry during their undergraduate education without disrupting their formal school schedule.
Advanced eClinical Training focuses on providing students with the necessary skills and experience but also on filling the ongoing shortage of qualified clinical assistant professionals and support staff across the US. The shortage of workforce in the healthcare industry is affecting patient care and timely medical assistance. A recent study identifies an insufficient number of students who graduate from school as one of the major reasons for this shortage. ‘Advanced e-clinical Training’ addresses this issue specifically by making the health certification courses affordable and accessible to all pre-medical students and ensuring their availability to the industry.
The courses are designed as flexible on-demand virtual learning certification programs which are immersive and experiential in order to provide students with the opportunity to interact with their own patients online. The programs include credible and valuable pre-health certifications, licensed by the department of education for clinical medical assistants, patient care technicians, pharmacy technicians, physical therapy technicians, and certificate courses for clinical research and medical terminology. They also include a wide range of mentorship programs. Advanced eClinical training is committed to having an impact on both the education and clinical roles of the students by ultimately trying to bridge the clinical experience gap.
The idea of ‘Advanced eClinical Training‘ emerged from the struggles faced by its founders during their pre-health education in 2015. They had no way to get essential healthcare experience during their schooling to get ready for their industry certification test in order to get national accredited certifications. Their commitment to ensuring that no pre-medical student shall face this difficulty in the future led to the foundation of this platform. Today they have a 100% enrolment rate for their courses and have the reputation of giving credible and authentic assistance to thousands of pre-medical students to fulfill their professional dream.
“We both were pre-health students at one point in our lives. Five years ago, we dealt with the same issue of inaccessible and unaffordable options to get healthcare experience. And today, through our initiative, ‘Advanced eClinical Training,’ we are able to deliver more authentic and credible assistance to students who are dealing with the same issue now. We are training and certifying competent students. We have a 100% employment rate. Our students are getting right out into the workforce,” Shabnam Safarzadeh and Shaghayegh Safarzadeh, the co-founders of the initiative, share their story.
‘Advanced eClinical Training‘ was established in 2020 and is headquartered in New York. Its allied health certification courses are designed for both pre-health undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students. It enjoys the approval and accreditation from a wide range of institutions and organizations, including the State of New Hampshire Department Of Education, Accreditation Council For Clinical Research & Education (ACCRE), National HealthCareer Association (NHA), Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) and American Medical Certification Association (AMCA) among others.

Created to address clinical staffing shortages in underserved areas, the assistant physician role is also designed to employ medical school graduates who have not matched into a residency program.
However, providers and medical organizations have not widely embraced assistant physicians as an effective solution. In the eight years since the position was created, only five states have licensed it, including Missouri, which created the position.
Assistant physicians graduate from medical school and have many of the same responsibilities as other clinical staff such as the similarly named physician assistants. But they do not have to complete a residency or undergo extensive hours of clinical rotations before diagnosing and treating patients. Assistant physicians are required to work in medically underserved areas, cannot practice independently and are not reimbursed by Medicare along with some commercial insurers.
Organizations such as the American Medical Association and American Academy of Family Physicians have opposed the designation, saying they are concerned about safety issues and that the quality of care provided by assistant physicians—particularly in medical care deserts—may not be not on par with doctors who have completed their residencies.
Discussion on the future of assistant physicians recently resurfaced in the medical community as advocates create model legislation for other states and seek to alter existing rules.
In June, the AMA House of Delegates rejected a proposal from its Missouri delegation to support assistant physician programs, and said it opposes any effort for graduating physicians to become independent, licensed physicians. It also opposes expanding the scope of their practice to other services or by geography without completing formal residency training.
ADDRESSING A PROBLEM
In 2014, Missouri created a licensed position called assistant physicians, sometimes referred to as associate physicians.
By tapping into a population of graduates that did not match into residency programs and having them work as licensed physicians in areas short of health professionals throughout Missouri, the state was able to "take an available resource and apply it to a real need," said Keith Frederick, a former member of the Missouri House of Representatives.
For years the limited availability of residency or postdoctoral training slots and application process complexities, paired with a greater number of graduates, has made the path to licensure more difficult, said Frederick, who helped pass the state bill to license assistant physicans. The assisant physician role becomes an opportunity for individuals to provide services and make a living to repay medical school loans, he said.
"If you have that amount of debt, and you can't continue training, it's kind of like having a mortgage but no house and no job," Frederick said.
Assistant physicians work under a collaborative practice agreement with a licensed supervising physician and typically have the same duties as nurse practitioners or physician assistants, prescribing medications, performing patient exams and assisting in surgery.
To become an assistant physician in Missouri, an individual must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident who is proficient in English, has graduated from a recognized medical school, has passed steps one and two of the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination and has not matched into or completed a residency program.
Once they receive their license, assistant physicians are required to receive a month of clinical training before practicing in a health provider shortage area, with oversight from a supervising physician.
Utah, Arkansas, Arizona and Kansas have followed Missouri's example and established similar licensing programs.
After graduating from medical school, Trevor Cook got a job as a medical scribe and dove into the residency application process, which he described as a "capitalistic hellscape." Cook said he spent thousands of dollars sending out test score transcripts and applied to hundreds of programs but was not accepted.
Cook came across job listings for assistant physicians in Missouri. Following 120 hours of training with a collaborating physician, Cook obtained his assistant physician license in 2018 and began working in urgent care.
"I perceive it as becoming a professional in the business, and the only way to really learn is to do it," Cook said.
For the last four years Cook said he has had the same responsibilities as a doctor, running tests, treating and diagnosing conditions, updating emergency medical records and referring patients to specialists. Cook said he sometimes works with his supervising physician, who is required to review at least 10% of his notes and be within 50 miles while Cook is practicing medicine.

A major sticking point for healthcare leaders is concern that assistant physicians do not have the same level of training and qualifications as those who have completed a residency program.
"We are very much in favor of our trainees following the traditional accepted path to full licensure," said Alison Whelan, chief academic officer at the Association of American Medical Colleges. "It dictates by specialty the type of learning and clinical experience that the resident must have to be an effective independent practitioner."
Just because a student has a medical degree does not mean they are ready to provide safe and effective independent care, especially without receiving training, supervision and feedback specific to their practice area, Whelan said. Residency programs can span more than four years and include 16,000 hours of direct clinical care experience.
The AMA has opposed the concept of the assistant physician since Missouri introduced it, fearing it might weaken the organization's case for increasing graduate medical education funding and creating more residency slots.
This year, more than 42,000 students applied for around 39,000 residency positions, and almost 37,000 positions were filled, leaving several thousand applicants unmatched, according to data from the National Resident Matching Program.
The main reason residency slots go unfilled is because students tend to try to match into specialties such as family or emergency medicine that are not a good fit for them, said Dr. Sterling Ransone, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians. When residency slots fill up in specialties, students untrained in other areas are in limbo, unable to apply to an area with open slots, Ransone said.
Ransone said he advocates for the correct allocation of funds to schools, hospitals and residency programs that allow for graduate students to gain more exposure to underserved communities and a variety of specialities.
Recently, the AMA urged support for two federal bills. One, the Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act, would expand Medicare funding for 14,000 additional residency positions. The other, the Physician Shortage Graduate Medical Education Cap Flex Act, would provide teaching hospitals with an extra five years to set their funding cap if they form residency training programs in primary care or other specialties facing shortages.
In July, the Health and Human Services Department announced $155 million in awards to 72 teaching health centers that operate primary care medical and dental residency programs in underserved and rural communities.
Amid all the abbreviations, titles and job descriptions in healthcare, some are concerned the assistant physician role adds to the confusion for patients, particularly with the existence of physician assistants. Physician assistants take a different road to licensure, though they have many of the same responsibilities as assistant physicians.
To become a physician assistant, medical students must earn a master's degree through an accredited physician assistant program—which includes more than 2,000 hours of clinical rotations—and pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination. Physician assistants have to complete 100 hours of continuing medical education credits every two years to maintain their certification.
In 2020, Missouri issued 169 assistant physician licenses, compared with 114 in 2021 and 17 in 2022, according to the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts. The state issued 200 physician assistant licenses in 2020, 282 in 2021, and 139 this year.
CONCERNS FOR UNDERSERVED AREAS
Assistant physicians are required to work in areas that lack medical providers, which has led to worries about health equity.
"There's some concern that they're going to create a kind of second-class physician that is for people who are already socially and economically disadvantaged," said Patricia Pittman, director of the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity at George Washington University. "Essentially, rich people see physicians and less rich people see those who were not able to become physicians, which is a bit problematic from an equity perspective."
Treating individuals in communities that lack access to care is often more complex due to the myriad social issues underlying their condition and requires more clinical experience rather than less, said Doug Olsen, president of the board of directors at the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved.
Rather than only allowing assistant physicians to work in healthcare deserts, their position should be expanded as part of a workforce for the entire state of Missouri, Olsen said.
"If they're good enough for the underserved, they should be good enough for the served," he said. "If they're good enough for the uninsured, they should be good enough for the insured."
Olsen said there is an absence of consistent evidence and patient-reported outcome measures that prove assistant physicians deliver high quality care and should be practicing with an expanded scope, despite eight years of the position's use.
Better solutions exist for staffing and care access in medically disadvantaged areas, such as obtaining long-term funding and creating partnerships between stakeholders and teaching health centers to provide more training opportunities and bring in more clinicians, said Amanda Pears Kelly, executive director for the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved.
"What we're trying to do with healthcare transformation is create situations where we can actually lift up these communities so that they're no longer underserved," Pears Kelly said.
NY Cannabis Insider has partnered with CannaBuff to publish answers to commonly asked questions around NY cannabis. CannaBuff is a cannabis media organization that produces a magazine, a Q+A website, podcasts, and industry meetups. Their licensed pharmacists take the time to answer questions from consumers, and NY Cannabis Insider will publish this guidance on a regular basis.
Even though it is legal for adults to possess and consume cannabis now in NY, there are no legal means of obtaining “recreational” cannabis. However, if you’re interested in using cannabis therapeutically, you may be able to obtain a medical card from a certified healthcare provider and purchase regulated cannabis products from one of NY’s licensed medical dispensing facilities. Many people forgo getting their medical card because they believe the process to be too difficult or time consuming. However, thanks to telemedicine, getting your medical card has never been easier.
Many practitioners certify patients via remote appointments where they speak to you face to face over Zoom (or other platform). These appointments can often be done right on your smartphone, are HIPAA compliant, and provide a fast and convenient way to obtain your medical card.
Every practitioner is different, but the process can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. The total time it takes to get your medical card from start to finish will depend on your healthcare practitioner and whether they send your documents to you right away or later on.
During your appointment, some practitioners will certify you “on the spot,” meaning they will enter your information into the medical cannabis data management system, generate your certificate, and send it to you right away. Other practitioners won’t complete the entire process until after your appointment.
In cases where you don’t receive your certificate right away, you’ll usually receive it via email within 24-36 hours. It really just depends on your practitioner, their preference, and availability. Some practitioners may want to spend time learning more about you and why you want to try medical cannabis. For instance, they might ask you some questions about what treatments you’ve tried in the past and how they worked for you. In the past, practitioners had to confirm that you had a qualifying condition, but due to recent changes in the medical program, practitioners have the liberty to certify you for any condition where they believe the drug will be beneficial.
It’s important to note that after you’re certified you must register your certification on my.ny.gov. This usually takes an additional 3-5 minutes, but can take even longer if you don’t have an account setup or if you can’t remember your login information. To find out more about how to register your certification read this guidance from the OCM. After you finish registering, a temporary card is generated that will allow you to gain entrance to a NYS dispensing facility. Be sure to bring your certificate with you to the dispensary in case the medical cannabis data management system is experiencing intermittent downtime. Currently, the system has been down for months, but is scheduled to go back online this week.
There are plenty of sites on the internet that can connect you with a practitioner that provides medical cannabis certification via remote appointments through telemedicine. CannaBuff’s preferred provider is nuggmd.com. Some others include fademd.com, hellomd.com, and leafwell.com.
According to the OCM’s website you can expect to receive your physical “Registry ID Card” in the mail in 7 business days. In our personal experience it may take up to 10 days, but you can still visit a dispensing facility as long as you have your temporary card and certification document.
Still confused? Ask us a question!
Disclosure: CannaBuff may receive a commission if readers purchase their medical cards through Nuggmd.com.

The resolutions could put the organization on a crash course with legislative leaders and Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Some describe it as a showdown for the “heart and soul” of the state’s largest medical society.
Members of the Florida Medical Association (FMA) House of Delegates will be asked in the coming weeks to vote on a number of resolutions that could not only pit members of the association against each other but put the FMA on a crash course with legislative leaders and Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Documents obtained by Florida Politics show members of the FMA’s House of Delegates will be asked to weigh in on issues ranging from abortion to constitutional carry to providing gender-affirming health care to patients.
“This is a real culture war,” said one person who asked to remain anonymous, adding, “normally, you don’t have resolutions that are directly contradictory to each other.”
According to those documents, there are two resolutions addressing gender-affirming care for transgender people and two different abortion resolutions for the House of Delegates to consider.
Submitted by the Emerald Coast Medical Association, one resolution would require the FMA to adopt Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo’s recommendation that social, medical and surgical transitioning treatment for gender dysphoria not be provided to children and adolescents.
Moreover, the resolution would require the FMA to send a “letter to Gov. DeSantis, the FMA PAC endorsed gubernatorial candidate, thanking him for this important policy to protect children from predatory clinicians and social media trends in our state.”
Meanwhile, Leah Kemble filed for consideration a resolution that would have the FMA lend its support for gender-affirming care for transgender and gender-nonconforming youth and adolescents.
Kemble’s resolution notes that gender-affirming care includes a “spectrum” of options and that the easiest to implement are social transitions “and involves using the child/adolescent’s preferred name and gender pronouns, allowing/encouraging preferred gender expression including wearing clothing, accessories, hair styling according to preferred gender expression.”
“Social transition requires no supervision or monitoring from the health care team,” the resolution notes.
The resolution also states that “numerous” studies have shown increased mental health disorders among gender nonconforming youth and adolescents.
Moreover, the resolution notes that while some claim as many as 89% of youth regret transitioning, “recent studies have shown that the opposite, in fact, is true.”
The resolution cites one study that claims regret rates are 0.6% for trans women and 0.3% for trans men in the Netherlands. Another statistic cited in the resolution is a study showing less than 1% of people who have transitioned show “clear regret,” defined as patients who “openly express their regret and have role reversal either by undergoing de-transition surgery or returning to their former gender role.”
Jacksonville health care lawyer Chris Nuland told Florida Politics that while the FMA House of Delegates has taken positions on high-profile issues in the past, he doesn’t recall a time when delegates have been hit with so many conflicting resolutions as this year.
“There are opposing political ideologies that are competing against each other this year, and it’s fascinating,” said Nuland.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, District XII, the Broward County Medical Association and the Florida Society of Ophthalmology are pushing a resolution dealing with abortion.
That measure would require the FMA to “support efforts by other medical societies to oppose actions by the Florida Legislature, now and in the future, to block abortion services, including but not limited to cases of rape, incest, or risk to the life of the pregnant person, to criminalize such pregnancy termination against the pregnant person and or physician, and to interfere with the professional relationship between a physician and patient, the expertise and medical judgment of said physician, and the autonomy and justice of said patient.”
Additionally, if approved by the House of Delegates, the resolution would require the FMA to “oppose any future legislation hindering or blocking the availability of FDA-approved treatments for pharmacological termination of pregnancy, regardless of whether used for termination or other unrelated indications, when this is a matter between the physician and patient.”
Conversely, physician Diane T. Gowski wants the House of Delegates to consider a resolution to require the FMA to “support pro-life legislation to work toward banning the practice of abortion in the state of Florida.” The resolution notes that “abortion is not health care but the killing of unborn children.”
Resolutions set the policy for the FMA. The FMA House of Delegates considers resolutions filed by voting delegates with the FMA at least two months before the House of Delegates meeting.
The resolutions are referred to a committee, where they are vetted and discussed. The committee can amend a proposed resolution if members choose. The resolution is then introduced to the full House of Delegates for consideration. If a majority of the House of Delegates approves the resolution, it passes.
While transgender care and abortion drew opposing resolutions, there are other politically divisive issues members of the House of Delegates will be asked to weigh in on.
The Florida Chapter Division of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, the Florida College of Emergency Physicians and Florida physician Megan Core are pushing a resolution that would have the FMA “actively and openly” oppose what’s known as “constitutional carry,” which would allow for permitless gun carry.
It’s a position DeSantis has promoted and has suggested he will push for in an upcoming Legislative Session.
Florida currently requires people to obtain a concealed weapon permit to carry a firearm. Carrying a concealed weapon without a permit is a third-degree misdemeanor.
“This type of legislation will eliminate any and all safety and training requirements for those who choose to carry firearms. Undoubtedly, this will lead to an increase in the number of accidental injury and death by firearms,” reads the resolution.
“Therefore, be it resolved that the FMA actively and openly oppose any such legislation that would reduce or eliminate the current requirements to obtain a license in order to carry a concealed firearm weapon or firearm, with requirements for licensure to include formalized training in gun use and safety.”
The House of Delegates will also consider a resolution affirming “no objective evidence that the American health care system is biased against racial minorities.”
Submitted by the Emerald Coast Medical Association, the resolution takes aim at the Federation of State Medical Boards and the American Board of Medical Specialties, which, the resolution alleges, make board certification “contingent on personal commitment to diversity equity and inclusion.”
Specifically, the resolution would require the FMA to “oppose any diversity, equity, and inclusion language that could impact physicians through either legislation or rule-making at the (Department) of Health,” and added that the FMA “through its delegation to the (American Medical Association) advocate this position when issues involving health care disparities and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives are raised.”
