Medical Licensing Service

Ohio Medical Board License Service

With the Ohio Medical Board, MedLicense.com is averaging 2 1/2 to 5 months for the issuance of a Ohio Medical License for Domestic Graduates from the submission of the application to the Medical Board to the issuance of the Physician Ohio Medical Board. Our firm has licensed Physicians in Ohio since April 2000. In an average year, MedLicense.com will handle between 50 to 65 Ohio Medical License Applications. We understand the process and what needs to be completed to have your application finalized. Once the files are deemed complete by the Ohio Medical Board the Ohio Medical License is issued. The Ohio Medical Board does not require a Physical Interview.

There are 3 licensure paths with the Ohio Medical Board. The first is the Full Endorsement/Examination Licensure path. This process runs 3-5 months depending on the Physician's Background. The second method is the Expedited Path. To qualify for the Expedited path, the Physician must meet certain criteria. These will be listed below. The third is the IMLC Compact Licensure Path. The time frame to receive the license through this method is about 50% faster than the Expedited Licensure Process.

Full Endorsement/Examination Licensure

With the Full Endorsement/Examination Path, the Ohio Medical Board mandates the use of the UA and FCVS to verify a physician's Medical School and Post Graduate Training. Before the UA application can be submitted to Ohio, the physician first has to submit the FCVS application. This is because the UA application will not allow an application to be submitted to Ohio until FCVS notifies the UA system that you have a pending application with FCVS with Ohio as the designated recipient. FCVS typically takes 3 to 6 months to set up a packet for Domestic Graduates and 3 to 12 months for International Graduates. One top of this, Ohio does not offer a temporary license to those Physicians who medical license application is complete with the exception of the FCVS packet. So if Physician has a job offer, then he or she is going to be sitting idle for 3 to 8 months while waiting for FCVS to complete their task.

Once the application is submitted to FCVS, the Ohio Medical Board and the Applications have been requested, we have to wait 30 days before contacting FCVS. FCVS will take a month to process the request and sent out their "First Request" to the Medical School and Training Hospitals. Our goal is to push the Applications back to FCVS from the verifying sources. The "non-FCVS" Applications are typically obtained/delivered to the Ohio Medical Board within 2 to 4 weeks of the submission of the UA Application to the Ohio Board.

Expedited Licensure

The advantage of applying for an Expedited Ohio Medical License is the simple fact that it only takes 25% of the time that the Full Endorsement/Examination Ohio Medical Licensing process takes. If you qualify for this method and do not/cannot go through the IMLC Compact process, then this is the preferred licensure method. The qualifying rules are below:

  • For at least five years immediately preceding the date of application, held a current, unrestricted license to practice medicine and surgery or osteopathic medicine and surgery issued by the licensing authority of another state or Canadian province. Any years for which you have held a training certificate, limited practice certificate/license, restricted license cannot be counted toward the five-year requirement.

  • For at least two years immediately preceding the date of application actively practiced medicine and surgery or osteopathic medicine and surgery in a clinical setting.

  • Have a clean license application, as defined below.

  • Not more than two malpractice claims within a period of ten years and no malpractice claim resulting in a total payment of more than five hundred thousand dollars.

  • No medical condition that could affect your ability to practice according to acceptable and prevailing standards of care.

  • No adverse action taken by a health care institution.

  • No federal agency, medical society, medical association or branch of the United States military has investigated or taken action.

  • No professional licensing or regulatory authority has filed a complaint against, investigated or taken action, including no withdrawal of a professional license application.

  • No suspension or expulsion from any institution of higher education or school, including a medical school.
