Physician Licensure Specialists


State Licensing Requirements

Nevada is known for its scenic deserts and, of course, Las Vegas. Nevada has some of the country's most stringent licensing requirements and investigative programs. Let Doctors Licensure Group guide you through the process.

Nevada Medical License Application 
How long will this take me?

Allow three to four months. It could be less. Nevada will keep the application on file for six months.

How quickly can I obtain my license?

Using our expedited service, we can have your application and verifications out the door within five business days.  Once your application is complete at the board, your file is sent to quality assurance, reviewed and a personal interview is scheduled by the board and the physician. Nevada accepts the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS) application.

What are some of the requirements for licensure?

Nevada requires original verification of the original birth certificate, passport or certificate of naturalization. The exception is when the FCVS verifies the original identity document while processing the FCVS packet and the identity verification or photo is of high visual quality. Nevada has some of the most stringent licensing requirements and investigative programs in the United States.

As an IMG, what is the minimum number of PGT need to qualify for licensure?

You must have completed two years of post-graduate training in the US in a program approved by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) or in Canada in a program accredited by the ACGME and approved by the board.

Am I required to earn CME hours if I was recently licensed/reinstated?

Yes, proof of four hours bio-terrorism AMA Category 1 is required and you must review guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concerning the transmission of infectious agents through safe injection practices.

Am I required to be board certified?

Yes, a copy of the ABMS Board certification certificate and copy of ABMS Board re-certification certificate is required. If you hold “lifetime or historical” ABMS Board certification, a notarized statement agreeing to maintain Board certification for the duration of your licensure in the state of Nevada is required.

You practice medicine, leave the license to us.
