Interstate Medical Licensure Compact

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) is a voluntary, expedited pathway to licensure for qualifying physicians who wish to practice in multiple states.

On June 7, 2021, Governor Greg Abbott signed into law House Bill 1616 which was passed by the 87th Texas Legislature, making Texas the 33rd member state to join the Compact.

The TMB is currently working with the IMLCC on implementing this new licensure process and anticipates beginning Compact licensing in early 2022. Please continue to visit this page for any updates as they become available.

For more information on the Compact, FAQs, informational videos, and how to qualify for licensing through this pathway, please visit the IMLCC’s website:
