The time it takes to get a medical license:
The time will depend upon which state you choose, how quickly your application
and verifications reach the board, how complete your information is, how busy the
board is and how often the board meets. On average, our physicians are getting
licensed in many states in 6-8 weeks. However, because of high volume other
states take longer.
Some medical boards, like the Medical Board of California, estimate that from
the time they receive your application it will take them 90 days just to review it.
However, several clients who've recently applied for a California medical license
received there first review letters in about six weeks. One client was recently
licensed within nine weeks. Traveling to California to do a Live Scan as opposed to
using fingerprint cards will reduce the time it takes for a background check to come
back. Live Scan results come back within days as opposed to months with the cards.
California has in place an online application status check, which helps greatly when
it comes to determining what items have arrived and what items are missing. They
don't offer details, a notes section or a means to communicate with the processor
via that system though like Texas has. Verification items are followed up with
aggressively to make sure they've been sent to the board to expedite the issuance
of the license number.
One of the busiest boards is the Texas Medical Board. For awhile it was taking up
to a year for many doctors to get licensed there. The board has improved its
processes to keep up with and better serve their applicants. One way was to
reduce the amount of work experience to be verified from 10 years down to five.
Another is to allow applicants, that completed their post graduate training more
than five years ago, to submit copies of their completion certificates rather than
requiring the hospitals to complete a three page form. They've also added an
online communication system for applicants. The system provides detailed
explanations of any items required to process a physician licensure application, and
provides a message center where applicants and Board staff can exchange
The system, called Licensure Inquiry System of Texas (LIST), is available to all
physician licensure applicants. We recently assisted a physician who was licensed
in four and 1/2 months. Another physician's application was expedited and
approved in two months, because he'll be working in an under served area. Kudos
The Florida Board of Medicine usually takes a minimum of 30 days from the time
they receive the application to do an initial review. Florida is now permitting
administrative approval of applications that do not contain any "red flags." These
applicants are getting licensed a couple weeks after the initial review because their
files no longer have to go before the Board. Florida has also added an online
application status check.
The New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiner's procedure is to wait for
most third party verifications to arrive before the medical license application is
assigned to an analyst. Once the analyst reviews the file and finds it complete a
license is issued shortly afterwards. Two of our clients were recently licensed in
New Jersey within 6 weeks of submitting their applications to the board.
The Virginia Board of Medicine is another well organized and fast board when it
comes to licensing. One of our clients was recently licensed in Virginia within 4
weeks of submitting his application. The Virginia board has an organized mail room
and items are seldom lost reducing the need to re-request items during the follow
The Hawaii Medical Board is one of the more pleasant medical boards to work
with. "Aloha" is the greeting you receive when calling. Hawaii does not require direct
source verification of medical school and required postgraduate training as long as
the applicant has a copy of their medical school diploma and training completion
certificates. A medical license may be obtained in as little as 5 weeks in some cases.
Many medical boards don't require medical license applications to sit and wait for a
monthly or quarterly board meeting unless there are issues such as malpractice
cases or disciplinary actions. These boards allow administrative approval. For
example, the following boards, once your application is complete, license
generally within a week or two; Connecticut Board of Medicine, Delaware Board
of Medical Examiners, Georgia Board of Medical Examiners, Illinois, Indiana Medical
Board, Maine Board of Licensure, Michigan Board of Medicine, New Hampshire
Board of Medicine, New York State Board of Medicine, Ohio State Medical Board,
Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine and Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners.
