Board of Medicine January Meeting Provides Regional Licensure Update January 26, 2022
Written by MSDC Staff
MSDC attended the DC Board of Medicine’s monthly meeting today to reiterate its support for regional licensure reciprocity. The DC, Maryland and Virginia medical boards will meet over the next week to discuss process and next steps. Regular MSDC readers will recall that the Board of Medicine voted to move forward with regional reciprocity at its December meeting. With prodding from MSDC, Virginia and Maryland are moving towards greater interstate licensure coordination with the District.
The Board of Medicine indicated that it still has vacancies for physician and consumer members. If you are interested in applying or have questions regarding requirements, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
