Arizona Medical Board License Service

Virtual Cred Possibilities’ Arizona Medical Board licensure process is averaging 40 to 90 days for the issuance of an Arizona Medical License. The Arizona Medical Board has an intensive process. The Board verifies 5 years of privilege and employment, School, Training, Exam Scores, Licenses, FBI Background Checks, NPDB-HIPDB, FSMB Board Action, and AMA Profile directly.

Verifications can be faxed in leu of snail mail. This helps expedite the process. The applications typically are approved internally and do not require a meeting to issue an Arizona medical license. Physicians with malpractice judgments and settlements can experience significant delays. The Arizona Medical Board requires that the Patient’s File and Xrays be forwarded to Arizona by the Facility/ Care Center. This can be challenging. Physicians with Disciplinary Actions or Significant Negatives (Arrests/etc.) will need to call the Board in advance of filing the application.
