BOSTON, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Barton Associates is excited to announce the launch of its State Physician Licensing Guide, an interactive tool that displays each state medical board's application requirements for obtaining a physician license.
As a leading locum tenens physician and nurse practitioner company, Barton Associates is committed to providing valuable resources for providers and hospitals, medical practices, and healthcare companies throughout the United States. Physicians who work locum tenens jobs must obtain a new license when they work in states where they are not licensed. Each state medical board has different requirements and processes, which can be a source of confusion for many locum tenens providers. Barton's licensing and credentialing team has extensive experience obtaining licenses for Barton providers nationwide and helped to create the tool in an effort to alleviate this confusion.
The State Physician Licensing Guide allows locum tenens physicians to quickly view and compare details on each state's requirements and processes for medical doctor (MD) licenses and, where applicable, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) licenses.
The State Physician Licensing Guide displays the type of application (paper, online, or both) each board accepts, as well as whether the board requires a separate State Controlled Substance Registration License, Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS) application, or fingerprint cards. The guide also displays the average amount of time it takes for the state board to process a permanent physician license and, when applicable, a locum tenens license.
Barton Associates created the State Physician Licensing Guide to provide physicians with a snapshot of the license requirements in each state; however, non-locum tenens physicians and physician staffing professionals at hospitals, medical practices, and healthcare companies may also find the tool useful. The tool is available online on the Barton Associates website.
