Michigan Medical Board License Service
With the Michigan Medical Board, MedLicense.com is averaging 60 to 110 days for the issuance of a Michigan Medical License from the submission of the application to the Medical Board to the issuance of the Physician Michigan Medical License for Domestic Graduates. International Graduates who cannot apply via Reciprocity might take longer due to the direct certification of the International Medical School.
The Michigan Medical Board has one of the slower Mail Systems in the USA. Very few applications for Domestic Graduates surpass the 90 day mark from the point of filing with MedLicense.com unless the physician graduated from an International Medical School which is not responding to the verification requests.
Michigan offers "True Reciprocity" if a physician has held a USA or Canadian Medical License (Full Active) for 10 or more years. Michigan will issue a license based solely on the Physician's past Licensure History. This means that the Doctor does not have to verify the Medical School, or Internship/Residency/Fellowship. As such the requirements for these are dropped by the Michigan Medical Board. A physician who is an International Medical School Graduate is treated the same way as a Domestic Medical School graduate if the doctor has held a State Medical Board License for 10 or more years. The only addition for the IMG applicant is that their ECFMG Status is required to be verified in addition to the verifications required for Domestic Medical School Graduates.
Michigan has ruled that Puerto Rico Medical Licenses will not be considered for Reciprocity due to the Fraud that was discovered in 2006 with members of the Puerto Rico Medical Board selling examination scores to Physicians.

If the physician is an IMG, then ECFMG Status is added. Michigan does not accept the Puerto Rico Medical License under its' Reciprocal Licensing Statutes.

- USA/Canadian PGT Training
- Medical School
