District of Columbia Medical License Service

With the DC Med Board we are experiencing licensing times 90 to 160 days depending on whether a Physician is a Domestic or Foreign Medical School Graduate. The time it takes to obtain a DC Medical License will be determined by who is assigned to your file by the DC Medical Board. Some analyst at DC are more efficient and responsive than others. The Board requires that all educational and training be verified directly with DC. DC typically does not issue exemptions to their requirements. Included in the verification load is International Training - if applicable. This can be quite daunting for an International Medical Graduate to over come. 

Additional DC Medical License Service Information:

The DC Med Board does not typically grant exceptions to their Educational, Training, and Examination Requirements. In 11 years we have had 3 physicians who sought to obtain exemptions to their rules and each was forced to withdrawal their applications or  face resistance from the DC Medical Board.


Maryland, District of Columbia, and Virginia Package:

Our physicians who license with  the District of Columbia Medical Board typically will license with the Virgina Medical Board and the Maryland Medical Board at the same time due to the proximity of both to the District of Columbia. We offer a package deal for these three States together. The Rate for the three is $1977.00 instead of the normal rate of $2157.00.


Medical License via Reciprocity - (For Physicians which hold an Active  Maryland or  Virginia Medical License) 

The District of Columbia Medical Board has signed into effect a Reciprocity Agreement with both the Maryland  Medical Board and the Virginia Medical Board. If you hold an active license in Virginia or Maryland, then you can license in the District of Columbia on a more expedited path. The time savings on the expedited path is about 30 days. So the licensure process which would have taken 90-160 days, now will typically take 60-120 days. The reason for this is that the DC Medical Board waives some of the verification requirements which tend to take more time to obtain if you hold an active license in MD or VA Medical License.
