Medical Board requires that applicants for a NC resident training license (RTL) must pass USMLE Steps 1 & 2 or COMPLEX 1 & 2 in no more than 3 attempts.

All physicians must be licensed by the Board of Medical Examiners of the State of North Carolina. The Board has discretionary licensure agreements with most states.
For information on licensure contact:

Secretary, NC Board of Medical Examiners
1203 Front Street
P.O. Box 20007
Raleigh, NC 27619

Foreign Medical Graduates

Foreign medical graduates must have passed the necessary exams for the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). The N.C. Medical Board requires that applicants must pass USMLE  or COMPLEX  in no more than 3 attempts. However, the Board shall waive the requirement if the applicant is certified or recertified by an ABMS, CCFP, FRCP or AOA approved specialty board with the past 10 years. Additional information may be obtained by visiting the ECFMG Web site.

This is to remind you that effective October 1, 2011 all International Medical Graduates (IMGs) will be required to use the Federation of State Medical Board’s Credential Verification Service (FCVS) as part of their application for a full, unrestricted medical license in North Carolina.  Please notify all of your residents that are IMGs, of this change in order that they can start the FCVS process if they are planning to remain in North Carolina following completion of their current postgraduate education program.  The FCVS process could take a minimum of 4 months to complete or as much as 6 months if they wait to begin the process after January 1.  If they delay starting this process they may not be licensed in time to begin work in July 2012.

Graduates of Canadian medical schools are NOT considered IMGs and will not be required to use FCVS as part of the application process.

FCVS was established in September 1996 to provide a centralized, uniform process for state medical boards to obtain a verified, primary source record of a physician’s core medical credentials.  FCVS obtains primary source verification of medical education, postgraduate training, examination history, board action history, board certification and identity. This repository of information allows a physician to establish a confidential, lifetime professional portfolio with FCVS which can be forwarded, at the physician’s request, to any state medical board that has established an agreement with FCVS, hospital, health care or any other entity.   http://fsmb.org/fcvs.html

Immunization requirements will be sent to house officers upon notification of appointment.
