Depending on the issues that you may be having, there are different approaches to take in dealing with the Bureau of Professional Licensing and the Board regarding your medical license.

However, no matter what stage you are at, there are certain steps you can take to improve your interactions.

First, make sure that you have all your documents in order. When dealing with licensing, it is likely that no matter the reason, they will require proof and written records. Depending on the nature of your interaction, you may need complete records of the following:

  • Continuing education credits,
  • Community service/volunteer work,
  • Letters of recommendation,
  • Proof of various trainings related to human trafficking, opioids, etc.,
  • Education,
  • and more.

Second, know the statutes that apply. Various statutes will likely apply to your situation and it is important that you are familiar with the laws. The statutes will impose certain requirements.

Third, dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Make sure that you are following the required formats for all submissions. Double check that no records are missing and that all of your explanations are in order. Know what needs to be notarized, and ensure that your notary follows the required format. It may be wise to have a third party review your documents prior to submission.

Fourth, follow up. If you can find a contact, following up on your documents can ensure that you have accurately submitted all requirements and are not missing any supporting information.

Finally, know when to call in the experts. When problems with your medical license arise, it is essential you take it seriously. Find a healthcare attorney that is familiar with licensing and credentialing to help you from start to finish. At Rickard & Associates, we help make the process as easy as possible for our clients and work with them every step of the way.
