Telemedicine Physician Licensure

Telemedicine in Maryland, like the rest of the U.S., requires valid medical licensure to ensure quality of care. Medical Licensure Group simplifies this process, assisting physicians through the application and acquisition of necessary licenses. We also support licensure through the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) for practicing across state lines. With MLG, physicians can quickly, efficiently, and compliantly incorporate telemedicine into their practices.

IMLC & Multi-State Licensure

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) simplifies the licensing process for physicians, including those in Maryland, who wish to practice in multiple states. Eligible physicians can apply through the IMLC, which streamlines the licensure process, saving time and effort. The Medical Licensure Group (MLG) assists throughout this process, providing comprehensive support to facilitate expedited licensure.
