What is a Temporary Post-Primary License for?
The Temporary Post-Primary License is a 6-month license only available to a Licensed Oregon Medical Technologist that is seeking to gain the required clinical experience in order to sit for a registry's exam.
This license is only valid for licensees that are seeking to obtain a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Medicine or Sonography credential to add to their existing License.
In Oregon, a person must hold a License issued by OBMI in a specific modality in order to perform radiological procedures in that modality.
What if I need more than 6 months to complete my clinical requirements?
If you need more than 6 months to obtain the required clinical experience, you may renew a Temporary license for an additional 6 months. Please use the same application for a renewal as for a Temporary Initial application.
Do I need an Employer before I apply for a Temporary License?
Yes! You must already have an employer in order to apply for a Temporary License.
I have my Temporary License, now what?
Once you have your Temporary License, you can gain your required clinical experience in order to take your Registry's exam.
I have passed my Registry Exam and I obtained my new credential, now what?
You must contact OBMI within 30- days of obtaining your credential to notify us of the change so that we can add your new credential to your existing license. The best way to let us know is to fill out and submit the form found HERE . There is no fee to add a new credential to your permanent license.
