Georgia Physician licensing

Georgia medical licensing process on average takes about 2.5 – 3 months given your background is clean. The application requires a few forms to be signed and notarized by the provider. No background check or employment verification is needed. However, they require 3 reference forms from other Physicians. Each reference needs to complete the form, seal it in the envelope and sign it across the back flap of it. Otherwise, reference won’t be accepted. Board might be quite hard to get ahold of, since there are only 4 people processing the Physician license applications. Your best bet is emailing your processor and leaving the voicemail.
