Want to know more about the IMLC Compact Licensing Process?

The IMLC Compact Licensing System allows for a licensure process that is more reciprocal in nature than has been seen in the last 70 years. In this system, the IMLCC acts as the hub between the Medical Boards to exchange information on those physicians who are qualified to be a part of the IMLC Compact. It is truly a better way to license than the old system of complete re-verification of a Doctor's Credentials each time they wish to apply for a new State Medical License. has successfully handled a large number of Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Commission License applications ( ILMC Compact ). Due to the individual State Medical Boards adding their own requirements to the ILMC process, the process can be confusing. We have provided a complete detailed report on the Compact IMLC, which will assist you in determining your eligibility as well has arming you with information that will be needed before you proceed. Our service fees for IMLC Compact Licensing is discounted compared to the Full Traditional Medical Licensing process. For a physician who qualifies to participate in the Compact IMLC, it is the preferred method of licensure.

Need a Fast Medical License?

If you need a Medical License Fast and it doesn't matter where then consider the following States:

#1 - Colorado Medical Board

The Colorado Medical Board is able to issue a Physician Medical License within 30 days of filing an Expedited Medical License application. The Expedited Application reduces many of the required verifications. This combined with the due diligence of the Colorado Medical Board results in a faster licensure process than other Boards. 

# 2 - Michigan Medical Board

The Michigan Medical Board is the only State with True Reciprocity. If a Physician has held an active License in the USA for at least 10 years, then the only verifications which are required are State License Certifications. Most licenses with Michigan are issued within 1 1/2 months to 3 months. If a Physician hasn't held a license for 10 years then the Physician's Medical School, State Licenses, and Board Scores have to be sent to the Indiana.

# 3 - New York Medical Board

For Domestic Graduates, New York is one of the fastest States in the USA. Why? New York does not verify Employment, Privileges, Malpractice, or Medical Licenses. Because we only have to verify the physician's Med School, Training Hospitals, and Exam Scores. The process typically is complete and NY Med Licenses are issued between 1 1/2 to 3 months. The internal mail system with New York runs between 2-4 weeks. International Graduates can have a much longer licensure time frame due to the mandated FCVS Requirement for IMG's.

# 4 - Indiana Medical Board

The Indiana Medical Board can issue a Temporary License in 2 weeks given that everything falls into place. Indiana has limited certification requirements which allows for an expedited process. The verifications which are required are limited to the NPDB-HIPDB report, Med School Transcripts, Exam Scores, and State License verficiations. Most licenses with Indiana are issued between 1 1/2 to 3 months.
