Additional Louisiana Medical Board Licensing Information:

Louisiana offers a Telemedicine License but it is not extended to many specialties (i.e. Pathology). The Telemedicine License does not grant a waiver to their SPEX Requirements. Most State Medical Boards which offer a Telemedicine License do so for the reason of allowing Experienced Physicians who have been practicing 20+ years to be able to practice without taking the SPEX Examination. Unfortunately Louisiana does not have this same philosophy. Their Telemedicine License is more concerned with the regulation of Interstate Medicine than to grant waivers to experienced physicians to the SPEX examination.

The LSBME recently changed their criminal background check process. Previously the Louisiana State Medical Board utilized the Louisiana State Police for all background checks. The rejection rate of fingerprint cards by the Louisiana State Police was almost 50%. When we had physicians who applied to Louisiana along with other Boards, the fingerprint cards sent to the other Boards would be accepted whereas the same cards sent to the LA Medical Board would be rejected. Louisiana has contracted with Identogo for the criminal background check. We believe this change will decrease the number of fingerprint card rejections and thus speed up the licensure process for the Louisiana Medical Board. 

IMLC Compact Participation:

The Louisiana Medical Board is a Sponsoring Member of the IMLCC Compact Licensure System. If you qualify for participating in the IMLCC Compact then we can license you in Louisiana through that system.   The IMLCC licensing process with Louisiana runs about 3 - 6 months. The Louisiana Medical Board has a number of issues which makes the Louisiana IMLC process the slowest in the Nation. 

1) Mail Loss is considerable

2) Communication with the Board is extremely sporadic

3) Louisiana requires the same verifications to issue a SPL / Letter of Qualification through the IMLC as they do for a first time applicant -including FCVS

4) Louisiana will seek to expire your application when the application is delayed by point 1-3 above
