Virginia Physician licensing

Virginia medical licensing process is pretty straight forward compared to anoher states. They also have a reciprocity which allows to expedite the process, but you must meet all of the qualifiers in order to be eligible. Board requires you to submit the Employment verifications, which can significantly slow down the process if you have multiple employers. Virginia Medical Board is also pretty backed up on the incoming mail processing. They run 15-20 days behind on it, meaning if you send in a verification it can only be looked at after they process the mail. If there is something wrong and the form needs to be re-sent you have to go through the same waiting process. We strongly suggest using UPS or FedEx when applying for Virginia license. Otherwise, board is pretty good on answering the phone and keeping you updated on the deficiensies with their online checklist. You should expect 2-3 months avergae licensing timeline.
