(c) Awaiting examination results. Effective July 1, 1986, if an individual scheduled to go into a second-year level of graduate medical training is awaiting the FLEX I score, the individual may not begin training at a second-year level until the individual has notified the Board that FLEX I has been passed, and the Board has issued the appropriate license, but may continue to train at a first-year level until that time, if the individual has renewed the first-year level license. An individual scheduled to go into a third-year level of graduate medical training who is awaiting the FLEX II score, may not begin training at a third-year level until the individual has notified the Board that FLEX II has been passed, and the Board has issued the appropriate license, but may continue to train at a first or second-year level until that time, if the individual has renewed the first or second-year level license.
