In order to provide patient care, a physician must have a license in the state where that patient is located, even if the physician already has an active license in another state. In response to this longstanding requirement, the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact was established in April 2015 to streamline the medical licensure process for Medical Doctors (MDs) and Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) who wish to practice in multiple states. To provide information about the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, the Oregon Medical Board reviewed and approved White Paper: Interstate Medical Licensure Compact and Oregon.
Oregon has not joined Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, but the Board is focused on streamlining the medical license application process for physicians and increasing the ability for physicians to provide care to Oregonians via telemedicine.
