Physician Applicants

Licensing Physician Applicants

The Texas Medical Board issues a full unrestricted license to practice medicine to physicians, as well as a number of limited and temporary licenses. Requirements vary based on license type.

The Board collects and verifies applicant credentials, as required by statute and Board Rule.

An applicant is not granted licensure until all required documents are furnished to the board and are verified.

The Licensure Department of the Texas Medical Board is committed to furthering the mission of the Board by ensuring quality healthcare for the citizens of Texas by upholding the standards set in statute and Board Rule, and by efficiently processing licensure applications.
