13th State Joins Interstate Medical Licensure Compact

May 12, 2016

This week New Hampshire became the lucky 13th state to join the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, a new, voluntary expedited pathway for licensure for qualified physicians who wish to practice in multiple states. A handful of additional states are expected to join later this year.

The AMA is a strong supporter of the compact, which promises to modernize the state licensure system while preserving state regulation of the practice of medicine. More information about the compact can be found on the AMA website or by contacting Kristin Schleiter of the AMA.
