Licensure and Professional Standing
All Member Boards require diplomats to hold a valid, unrestricted medical license in at least one state or jurisdiction in the United States, a U.S. territory, or Canada.
Additionally, some boards require physicians to show documentation of hospital privileges and describe the nature and scope of their practice. Some Member Boards also require completed surveys or letters from medical hospital staff, including supervisors such as department chairs or chiefs, or board-certified peers attesting to their professionalism and clinical competence.
