What fees can I expect to pay to the Medical Board of California?
The Medical Board of California collects a non-refundable application processing fee of $491. Upon licensure approval, the California Medical Board will collect a licensing fee of $808.

How long can I expect the California medical licensing process to take?
California is a high-volume applicant state. The CA Medical Board mandates that the board analysts have up to 90 business days in which to perform an initial review of your application and supporting documents. With that, the overall process typically takes 3-5 months. This includes application preparation and finalization, credentials verification requests, and follow-up to licensing. Time delaying factors include a history of malpractice claims, disciplinary action, arrests, lengthy state licensure history, etc. Physicians currently in training can expect faster processing times averaging 1-2 months.

Is there any way to fast track my California medical license?
The Medical Board of California does not offer temporary licenses. This means that all supporting documents must be reviewed by the Board staff prior to approval. Medical Licensure Group offers an accelerated program whereby we prepare and ship your professionally prepared California medical license application and credentials verification requests out within 24 hours.

Do I have to submit to a background check?
