Indiana Medical Licensure

Indiana Medical License :arrow:

Indiana is one of the "easy license states". Very efficient, friendly and helpful state medical board - called Indiana Helath Professions Bureau. You must have completed your USMLE steps within 3 attempts each and a total 7 year time period. For US graduates, the postgraduate training requirement is 6 months to sit for the step 3 exam. For IMGs, you can apply for step 3 exam after 2 years of US residency.

Permanent medical licensure: US graduates, are eligible to apply for permanent medical license after completion of 1 year of GME / postgraduate training (Internship, Residency or Fellowship). International Medical graduates (IMGs) require completion of 2 years of GME / postgraduate training to be eligible to apply for permanent medical license.

Application is a simple process. Fee is cheap $ 250 for medical license and $ 60 for CSR(controlled substance registration - This is the State equivalent of the DEA). Fee is for a 2 year license. :lol: :lol:

Applied for my Indiana license and got it within 2.5 months. It was very quick and painless. Wish all other states are like this.

I got my Indiana license in 1.5 months. Few key points to remember when you are applying for your Indiana license: 1. Make sure you get a letter of good standing from your residency program. 2. Make sure you get a letter of good standing from the state you are doing residency in. 3. When you do the self-query for your name, make sure you send in all the papers.

I forgot to add that you need to get both letters of good standing sent directly to the Indiana medical board. And the self query is called: National Pracationers Database (NPDB) 8)

I've been out of medicine for five years (due to illness). I've kept up with my CMEs and am working in a mental-health, non-medical position. Does Indiana take time out of medicine into consideration? I do not have problems with visas (American citizen, American medical school) or licensing scores (passed all three parts at first attempts). I've just had problems getting back due to my illness.

I may not be able to get a letter of good standing from my last residency programs. I had a lot of problems before resigning. I do have excellent LoRs from my current employer, from the management, as well as the medical staff.

I'm fine now, but want to find a state that would license me. Texas was not sympathetic to my situation (be wary of Texas, doctors), but I heard that IN's (and PA's) process to get a license were not as hostile.
