Are you a physician or provider interested in medical licensure? A healthcare organization looking to hire newly licensed physicians?

Navigating the intricate details of medical board requirements can be a difficult process – but it doesn’t have to be. The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and their partner, the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS), are key organizations when it comes to state medical board compliance.

At MLG, we understand that obtaining and maintaining medical licensure can be a challenge, which is why our team is dedicated to helping physicians and healthcare organizations alike streamline the entire licensure process. 

Understanding the FSMB State Requirements

The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) is an organization that offers a helping hand to medical professionals navigating the licensing process in the United States. Individual state medical boards regulate and issue licenses, but FSMB works to make that process smoother by providing useful resources and guidelines for licensure.

Using their Uniform Application simplifies the process for applicants – it’s standardized across all participating states, so applicants don’t have to worry about filling out multiple forms. 

If you’re an applicant, there are guidelines you must follow to be eligible such as graduating from an accredited medical school, completing supervised postgraduate clinical training, passing licensing exams, and verifying training with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Overall, the FSMB is an invaluable partner in making sure that medical professionals have the guidance they need to join the profession – they’re making sure medical licensure is simpler and more efficient than ever.

FCVS and FSMB: How They Work Together

The Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS) is a partner of the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), and the FCVS helps physicians streamline the licensure process by providing primary source verification of medical credentials.

Having correct, up-to-date FCVS/FSMB information about your education, training, practical experience and professional history can help increase your chances of getting approved for licensure and finding the right job.

Through FCVS, you can create a comprehensive profile that includes documents such as medical school transcripts, board certification results, Professional Liability Insurance History Reports and other forms of evidence of professional qualifications. This single source of data helps make it easier to verify a professional’s credentials as they pursue new opportunities.

Thanks to FSMB FCVS, you can now get verified faster and more efficiently than ever before. With less time spent on paperwork, you have more time to focus on practicing your profession and protecting your patients’ health and safety.
