Pennsylvania Medical Board License Service

**Warning for IMG's applying to Pennsylvania**

Since March of 2021, we have noticed that the Pennsylvania Medical Board is not providing the applications submitted by Foreign Medical School Graduates / International Medical School graduates the same attention as domestic graduates. We have 5 IMG's in PA who have been complete since March - June 2021 and the PA Medical Board is not updating their online portal, not logging in mail or verifications, and not providing updates. If you are an IMG and need to apply for a Pennsylvania Medical License, you need to give yourself enough time.

Pennsylvania is one such Medical Board.
