Licensing and Credentialing
FOR LOCUM TENENS
Eliminate the Busy Work
Onboarding and credentialing requires skill, knowledge, and patience. At Floyd Lee Locums, we assist clinicians with getting through the complex and ever-changing requirements needed to complete this process. Whether this is your first assignment, or you are a seasoned locum tenens provider, we are here to facilitate licensing and credentialing so when the right opportunity arises, you can apply in minutes.
Incomplete or out-of-date information can prevent timely applications for locum tenens jobs or even delay your start date. On any given day, there are thousands of locum tenens jobs across the U.S. However, before a provider can start an assignment, he or she must be licensed to work in that state.
We traditionally obtain licenses through the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC). The IMLC allows locum tenens physicians and advanced practice providers to obtain licenses to practice across most state lines without the usual extended wait times. And if you’re interested in government assignments, such as VA hospitals, we can handle all the requirements and applications for that, too.
State Medical Licensing
Let Us Help You Obtain a New State License
Select up to three states to see credentialing details.
The IMLC is an agreement between 39 states, the District of Columbia, and the Territory of Guam where physicians are licensed by 43 different Medical and Osteopathic Boards. Under this agreement, licensed physicians can qualify to practice medicine across state lines within the Compact if they meet the agreed-upon eligibility requirements.
Benefits of the IMLC
- More licenses equals more opportunities to be the first physician presented to a facility for the most compelling and highest-paying jobs
- The IMLC provides faster licensing compared to licensing directly through a State
- Everything is standardized - so there is no need to worry about license requirements varying between states or additional background checks and costs beyond the license fee
- Ability to add State licenses in the future
- Ability to quickly place healthcare professionals at underserved or rural facilities and to urgent situations
- Only 2-4 weeks to receive your IMLC, and State licenses are usually issued within a week
