About Our Services


Are there any fees I am responsible for paying aside from your service fee?
As with all medical licensing agencies, a flat rate is charged for our service fee which is exclusive of the fees charged by the state medical board and credentials holders. We coordinate these payments with you to keep things clear and simple.

How do you ensure that my information is kept secure and confidential?
We understand the importance of securing your sensitive information. Our website utilizes a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which provides secure web communication by encrypting sensitive information. Our database and website is tested daily for security vulnerabilities. All correspondence and transactions remain CONFIDENTIAL.

Why should I hire your agency rather than just do the paperwork myself?
In a word - Experience. Physicians and their staff often make time-delaying mistakes with the application or verification process. Hiring our agency means that you will have a full-time, highly trained specialist working to make the licensing process as transparent to you as possible. Not convinced? Check out what our clients think.

Who will be handling the processing of my application in your office? You will form a smooth working relationship with one of our experienced licensing specialists who will be available to you throughout the entire process. One of the most frequent compliments we get from our clients is the accessability of their file manager. We know your time is valuable!

What happens to my information once the process is complete? Your information will remain stored in our secure database for life. Never again will you need to fill out a state medical license application or hospital credentialing paperwork! Anytime you want to apply for licensure in another state, a quick phone call to your licensing specialist will get the process started.


About the State Licensing Process


What is the average processing time from start to finish? This is a tricky question to answer as there are many factors to consider. It boils down to the target state(s) and the applicant's history. Generally speaking, the process in most states from start to finish takes 10-12 weeks. Factors that can lengthen the process include.
  • Selecting a state that processes a high volume of applicants such as Florida, Texas, California, New York and New Jersey
  • Time of year - the busy season for medical boards is from March through September
  • Lengthy or difficult to verify professional history
  • A history of malpractice claims, professional disciplinary action, convictions, etc.

  • What is my part in the process should I choose to hire your agency? We aim to handle as much of the licensing process as possible. Things that will require your attention if applicable to your target state(s) include: photos, fingerprinting, signature, notarization, collection of court records, etc. You will be guided through every action that requires your attention.

    Should I use the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS)? There are a handful of states that require their applicants to establish a profile with the FCVS. For those who are not required to use the FCVS, we recommend that only international graduates utilize this core credentials verification service. Establishing your FCVS profile will take an average of 3-5 months. Important facts:
  • If the FCVS is not successful at gathering your medical education verification (the main benefit of using their service), you remain responsible for gathering these documents on your own.
  • Some states require specific verification forms to be sent to your medical college and returned to their board. In these cases, the medical education verification from the FCVS is useless.
  • Once your profile is established, you will pay a profile designation fee plus re-pay to have your exam transcripts and ECFMG certification collected before your profile is sent to the designated state.
  • In summary, the FCVS is useful for international graduates to eliminate the need for repeated direct verification of your medical education. Call us to learn if the FCVS is right for you.

    What if I do not meet the state eligibility requirements? All states have unique medical licensure eligibility requirements that must be met before you can apply. You must complete a certain number of years of accredited postgraduate training, meet the USMLE attempt and time limitations and so on. If you are not clear about eligibility, contact our office for a free consultation.
