However, out-of-state physicians may consult with a state-licensed physician for up to 12 days in any 52-week period without requiring a Wyoming license.

Wyoming Medical License Lookup

The Wyoming Medical License Lookup is an essential tool for verifying the credentials of healthcare professionals practicing in the state. To access the Wyoming Medical License Lookup, visit the official website of the Wyoming Medical Board. This is the primary source for licensure verification and is updated regularly to provide the most current information.

The system allows for two types of search queries:

  • License Number: If you have the specific license number of the healthcare professional, you can enter it to get direct results. This is the most accurate way to confirm licensure status.
  • Last Name: Alternatively, you can search by entering the last name of the healthcare professional. This method is useful when you do not have the license number but know the name of the individual. Keep in mind that this may yield multiple results if there are professionals with similar names.
