Licensing

Medical licensing for different states can be a quagmire of paperwork, delaying you from making a living as a physician. It is never too early to contact state licensing boards concerning the right to practice medicine in their state. Even if you have not signed a contract with a potential employer, but you already know which state you would like to practice medicine in, then contact the state board immediately! Below is a comprehensive list of State Medical Licensure Boards for your convenience.

If you do not have the time to go through the licensing process, then hire a Licensure Consultant to relieve you of some of the burden.

Licensure Consultants can:

  • Expedite the process
  • Cut the wait time (depending on their relationship with the boards)
  • Make sure all documentation is submitted.
