Puerto Rico Medical Board License Service

If you have tried to contact the Puerto Rico Medical Board, then you have discovered that just getting someone on the phone is problematic. The Board doesn't answer emails or answer their phone. If you are able to have someone at the Board answer the phone, the chances are that that person cannot help you and that you will be told to call back and speak to another person who can. The Puerto Rico Medical Board does not have a website that works or an online application. 

With the large influx of "non-resident" Physicians from the 50 States into Puerto Rico to take advantage of their 5% income tax rule, the Puerto Rico Medical Board ( and Nursing Board ) has added additional burdens upon the English speaking practitioners which by design create additional obstacles to obtaining the required license. Most recently the Physician Medical Board has added new CME Requirements. The CMEs are only offered in Spanish. What is an English Speaking Physician to do? The Nursing Board just eliminated its' English Version of its' application. It no longer accepts the English Version. All applicants now have to submit the application in Spanish. 

MedLicense.com has licensed physician's in Puerto Rico since 2011. We are the only licensing company that licenses physicians in Puerto Rico. Other companies actually refer their physicians to us. 

Puerto Rico Medical Board Licensing Information:

  • The process with the Puerto Rico Medical Board typically cycles on a bi-weekly basis. As such updates are going to have an accuracy of 14 days give or take.  
  • The Puerto Rico Medical Board loses 20-25% of the mail sent to them. This causes delays. The process grinds slowly with this medical board and as such has to be built into the expected time frame for issuance of the Medical License
  • The Fee which MedLicense.com charges for Puerto Rico is $1999.00.   The reason for this is that we have a much higher base line cost to handle the process for Puerto Rico due to the unique requirements of the Puerto Rico Medical Board process.
