Maryland Medical Board License Service

With the Maryland Medical Board, is averaging 2 1/2 to 4 months for the issuance of a Maryland Medical License from the submission of the application to the Medical Board to the issuance of the Physician Maryland Medical License. Our firm has licensed Physicians in Maryland since April 2000. In an average year, will handle between 35 to 45 Maryland License Applications. We understand the process and what needs to be completed to have your application to be approved.  Once the files are deemed complete by the Maryland Board the Maryland Medical License is issued. The Maryland Medical Board does not require a Physical Interview.

Maryland places an artificial time line of 120 days on each application. This puts additional stress on the process. If everything is not acknowledged as received within the 120 day window, the application will expire. This typically impacts physician's with foreign medical schools or training programs which are unresponsive.

The Maryland Medical Board has a strange English Certification requirement for International Medical Schools. If your school taught the Physician in a language other than English then the Physician will have to take the OPI or TOEFL examination. Other than this the process is very abbreviated when compared to other Medical Boards. Only the core credentials are verified. No employment, privileges, or references are required.

Whether you are a USA Graduate or a Graduate of a Foreign Medical School, our process can move this arduous process through within a time period that will meet you needs. Your involvement in the process is kept to a minimum, with handling the vast majority of the process. The fee for our services is a one time payment of $739 (if you are practicing) or $579 (if you are in training) per State Process. Our packet is shipped to you after a 5-10 min consultation. Sign, notarize, and proof your application packet and then return it to with the requested copies, photos, and addendums. Then will forward the completed packet to the Maryland Medical Board. Then the certification process begins along with the required follow up with the third parties and Maryland Medical Board. All that you have to do is start the process with


Additional Maryland Medical Board Licensing Information:

The Maryland Medical Board does not offer a Temporary Medical License. Typically it is not needed unless the physician is a foreign medical graduate. International Graduates are required to have their school certify that the courses were taught in English. If they were not then the Physician will have to take and pass the OPI or the TOEFL Examination. Physicians who have taken the TOEFL in the past will be required to take it again. There are no exemptions to this requirement. The OPI is administered at the Maryland Medical Board, whereas the TOEFL can be taken at any approved facility that is offering it.

Maryland Medical Board Regulations - PGY

E. On a case-by-case basis, the Board may consider full-time teaching in an LCME-accredited medical school in the United States as an alternative to the accredited postgraduate clinical medical education programs required in §D of this regulation.

F. The Board may consider practice in another state of the United States or in Canada as an alternative to the accredited postgraduate clinical medical education program required in §D of this regulation if:

(1) There is a minimum of 10 years clinical practice in the United States or Canada, with 3 years being within 5 years of the date of the application; and

(2) The clinical practice occurred under a full unrestricted license to practice medicine.


Maryland, District of Columbia, and Virginia Package:

Our physicians who license with the Maryland Medical Board typically will license with the Virgina Medical Board and the District of Columbia Medical Board at the same time due to the proximity of both to Maryland. 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  District of Columbia (DC) or  Virginia Medical License) 

The Maryland Medical Board has signed into effect a Reciprocity Agreement with both the District of Columbia Medical Board and the Virginia Medical Board. If you hold an active license in Virginia or District of Columbia, then you can license in Maryland on a more expedited path. The time savings on the expedited path is about 30 days. So the licensure process which would have taken 75-115 days, now will typically take 45-85 days. The reason for this is that Virginia waives some of the verification requirements which tend to take more time to obtain if you hold an active license in DC or VA Medical License. *Please note, the Maryland Board of Medicine does not allow International Medical School Graduates who are licensed in Virginia to apply via the Reciprocal Licensing Process due to differences in the Virginia IMG requirements when compared to the Maryland IMG requirements.
