Additional California Medical License Service Information:

CA Med Board has extended the time it takes to perform their first review of submitted California Med License applications. Until the first review occurs, the role of is to insure that all required verifications are forwarded to the CA Medical Board. The acceptance of the verifications is determined by California Medical License Service at the first review. In the event that a verification is rejected, then the verification will be resent by the institution in questions. CA typically has a high failure rate in the Internship, Residency, and Fellowship Verification Forms. The reason for this is that the form requires the Current Program Director who is listed as such by the ACGME must read through the form very carfully and check a number of small boxes. Then the hospital must apply its seal or have the form notarized. Often times, in their rush to complete the form, boxes are missed or instructions are not followed.
