ARCHITECTURE

Petition for: Waiver of New York State requirements pertaining to acceptability of
licensing examinations for licensure by endorsement.

Summary Statement: The petitioners listed below are all graduates of professionally
accredited architecture programs who have applied for licensure in New York. All have
achieved, at a minimum, a Bachelor of Architecture degree. All petitioners have
substantial documented licensed experience in other states.

         Prior to 1983, certain states did not require the Equivalency Examination (EE) or
the Qualifying Test (QT) if a candidate had a degree from an accredited architecture
program, and granted licensure upon passage of the Professional Examination (PE).
Prior to 1975, most states recognized the Examination Syllabus (ES). The petitioners
passed either the national Professional Examination (PE) given prior to 1983, or
portions of the national Examination Syllabus (ES) given prior to 1975. Prior to 1983,
New York State required passage of the Equivalency Examination (EE), or passage of
the Qualifying Test (QT) in addition to passage of the national Professional
Examination. Each of the petitioners satisfied the examination requirement in his/her
initial state of licensure by passing an acceptable licensing examination and attained
licensure in that state.

        Section 7304(4) of Education Law and Section 69.3 of the Commissioner’s
Regulations require for endorsement that “… an architect licensed in another state or
jurisdiction as the result of successful completion of only the professional examination in
use before 1983 may be granted licensure upon presentation of evidence of two years
of work experience of a grade and character satisfactory to the State Board for
Architecture and passage of a practical examination satisfactory to the State Board for
Architecture …”

       Each petitioner satisfied the examination requirement in his/her initial state of
licensure and has extensive professional practice satisfactory to the State Board. Since
the above information illustrates evidence of competence within the profession, and in
lieu of the practical examination, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for
Architecture recommends that the examination requirement be considered satisfied and
each applicant’s licensure in another state be accepted for endorsement in New York
State.

Melissa Gialanella
Rockaway, New Jersey 07866

(St. Francis College, Brooklyn Heights, New York, Bachelor of Science in Accounting,
June 1998)

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy
Examination.

Statement of Problem: Commissioner's Regulations required that Ms. Gialanella pass all
parts of the Uniform CPA Examination within 36 months. She passed the four parts of
the Uniform CPA Examination as a New Jersey candidate under conditioning
requirements that are different than the 36-month conditioning requirements in New
York.

       The national Uniform CPA Examination transitioned from a paper-based format
to a computer-based format in 2004. At the point of transition, New York awarded
conditional credit for sections passed under the paper-based format for a three-year
period starting from the month in which the paper-based section was passed. Ms.
Gialanella passed the Auditing and Business Law/Professional Responsibility sections
under the paper-based format in May 1999.           Under New York’s conditioning
requirements, she needed to pass the two remaining sections by the end of May 2002
to retain credit for the two sections passed. New Jersey’s regulations allowed
individuals who passed paper-based sections in May 1999 to retain credit for those
sections until October 31, 2004. Ms. Gialanella passed Financial Accounting and
Reporting in November 2002 and Accounting and Reporting in May 2003. This satisfied
New Jersey’s conditioning requirements; however, it did not satisfy New York’s shorter
conditioning requirements.

       Based on these unique circumstances, the Executive Secretary for the State
Board for Public Accountancy supports Ms. Gialanella’s request to waive the 36-month
requirement to pass all four parts of the Uniform CPA Examination.

Patrick T. Boyle
Floral Park, New York 11001-2439

(Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York, Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts,
May 1984; Adelphi University, Master of Business Administration in Management, May
2005).

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy
Examination.

Statement of Problem: Patrick T. Boyle, an applicant for licensure as a CPA, recently
passed the four parts of the Uniform CPA Examination. However, he exceeded the
requirement that all four sections be passed within an 18-month period by two months.

       Mr. Boyle received conditional credit on the Business Environment & Concepts
(BEC) section of the examination in October 2005. He subsequently passed the
Regulation (REG) section in February 2006 and the Financial Accounting and Reporting
(FAR) section in February 2007. Mr. Boyle needed to pass the fourth section, Auditing
and Attestation (AUD), by June 30, 2007 to retain credit for the BEC section passed in
October 2005. He sat for AUD and passed it in August 2007, approximately two months
outside of the conditioning period.

      In his letter Mr. Boyle explained that his attempts to pass all parts of the Uniform
CPA Examination within the 18-month time period were complicated by administrative
delays in scheduling and score release. He also provided copies of communications
between himself and the exam administrator. A review of the national candidate
database confirms Mr. Boyle’s assertions.

      Based on the strength of the documentation provided by Mr. Boyle and the
supporting evidence, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy
supports his request to waive the 18-month requirement to pass all four parts of the
Uniform CPA Examination.

Joan S. Fine
Melville, New York 11747

(New York University, New York, New York, B.S. in Education, 1974)

Petition for: Satisfaction of the education requirement for the associate degree route.

Statement of Problem: Ms. Fine was awarded a B.S. degree in Education from New York
University in 1974 and subsequently completed an additional 16 semester credits in social
and behavioral sciences at The American University, 33 semester credits in dietetics and
nutrition and human biological sciences at New York Institute of Technology and 13
semester credits in human biological sciences at Nassau Community College.
Commissioner’s Regulations require a minimum of 45 semester credits in the professional
content area of dietetics and nutrition for applicants seeking licensure through the
baccalaureate degree route. The coursework Ms. Fine completed in her combined studies
covers all the required subject areas in both the professional content area and the content
area of human biological sciences and social and behavioral sciences; but she has only
approximately 30 semester hours in the professional content area.

       However, the semester hours of study completed by the applicant satisfy all the
educational requirements for the associate degree route, which requires a passing score
on the licensing examination. Ms. Fine, however, was not awarded an associate degree.
The applicant asks that her Bachelor of Science degree completed at New York University
along with her other college study be considered the substantial equivalent of an
associate degree in dietetics and nutrition.

THREE YEAR LIMITED LICENSE IN DENTISTRY

Petition for: Three-year limited license to practice Dentistry under Section 6604(6) of the
Education Law.

Statement of Problem: The applicants listed below have satisfied the education and
examination requirements for licensure as a dentist in New York State. The only
requirement for full licensure that cannot be satisfied at this time is United States
citizenship or immigration status as an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence
in the United States.

      Each applicant has an opportunity to practice dentistry in an area which has been
designated a Federal Dental Health Professions Shortage Area and requests a three-
year waiver of the citizenship requirement under Section 6604(6) of the Education Law.
Each applicant must sign an affidavit stating the exact location of the shortage area
where he/she will practice before the three-year limited license will be issued.

Applicable Guidelines: Section 6604(6) of Education Law relates to the requirement of
United States citizenship or permanent resident status for licensure as a dentist in New
York State and allows the Board of Regents to grant a one-time, three-year waiver of
this requirement for an alien dentist to practice in New York State if all other licensure
requirements are satisfied and to grant an additional extension not to exceed six years
to enable the alien to secure citizenship or permanent resident status, provided such
status is being actively pursued.

ACTION: The Department shall issue a three-year limited license to each applicant to
practice dentistry in New York State in a Federal Dental Health Professions Shortage
Area upon approval by the Department of all documentation needed to verify
satisfaction of all dentistry licensure requirements other than citizenship and an
acceptable Affidavit of Agreement on the applicant’s location of employment. The
limited license may be renewed upon the lawful submission of an application for an
extension of not more than six years, at the discretion of the Department.

Mark Hershowitz
Mullica Hill, NJ 08062

(Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, O.D., 1983)

Petition for: Waiver of New York State practical examination requirement.

Statement of Problem: Dr. Hershowitz has not passed a satisfactory practical
examination as required for licensure either by the endorsement or examination route.
New York State accepts a passing score on Part III of the National Board of Examiners
in Optometry (NBEO) examination to satisfy the practical examination requirement. The
NBEO practical examination was not available when Dr. Hershowitz was licens ed in
Pennsylvania in 1983 after successfully passing the Pennsylvania State Board
Examination. The state examination for Pennsylvania given in 1983 was administered
by the NBEO and is comparable with Part III of the NBEO examination, including both
written and clinical sections testing patient management skills.

     Dr. Hershowitz has documented over 22 years of licensed practice in
Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He became certified in the use of diagnostic
pharmaceutical agents and therapeutic pharmaceutical agents in both New Jersey and
Pennsylvania.

        Based on Dr. Hershowitz's demonstration of clinical skills through more than 22
years of hands-on licensed practice and his success on other professional
examinations, the Acting Executive Secretary of the State Board for Optometry
recommends that the requirement for a satisfactory practical examination (NBEO Part
III) be waived.

New York State accepts a passing score on Part III of the National Board of Examiners

MEDICINE
07-72-60
George Roman Turiansky
Waterbury, Connecticut 06706

(Universidad Centro de Estudios Tecnicos, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Doctor
of Medicine, February 1981).

Petition for: Acceptance of medical education under the guidelines for graduates of
CETEC.

Statement of Problem: Dr. Turiansky graduated in 1981 from the Universidad Centro de
Estudios Tecnicos (CETEC), Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He transferred to
CETEC after previous study at Universidad Central Del Este, San Pedro de Macoris,
Dominican Republic. CETEC was one of three schools disciplined by the government of
the Dominican Republic for fraudulent practices. The New York State Board of Regents
established criteria for acceptance of clinical training performed by CETEC graduates in
U.S. hospitals.

        Dr. Turiansky is presenting evidence of 48 weeks of clinical training in psychiatry,
internal medicine/gastroenterology/hematology/oncology, general surgery, obstetrics and
gynecology, and pediatrics in U.S. hospitals to fulfill the Regents criteria. These criteria
require that the hospital attest to the successful completion of the clerkship by the
applicant and that students from other medical schools must also have participated in the
clerkship at the same time as the applicant. Additionally, the hospitals must confirm that
both the scope and content of the clerkship and the performance of the applicant is
equivalent to that required of other medical school students at a similar level who
performed the clerkship at their hospital. Two hospitals have verified the satisfactory
completion by the applicant and the equivalency of the four weeks of obstetric and
gynecology clerkships; however, they cannot verify that other students participated in the
clerkships at the same time as the applicant. All the other hospitals provided attestations
verifying that the applicant satisfied the Regents criteria.

        Dr. Turiansky successfully completed a four-year accredited residency program in
psychiatry at Bergen Regional Medical Center, Paramus, New Jersey. Additionally, he is
certified by the American Board of Psychiatry, 2005. Based on Dr. Turiansky’s total
training and National Board certification, Department staff recommend that Dr. Turiansky
be approved as satisfying Regents criteria for CETAC graduates.
APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:                     QUALIFICATIONS:
