The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) has begun work on the third draft of its medical licensure compact. The compact will enable physicians who practice in multiple states to obtain licensure more efficiently in states participating in the compact. This will prove particularly helpful for physicians who provide telemedicine services across multiple states.
The compact is gaining momentum, and in early 2014, 16 U.S. senators signed a letter supporting FSMB's initiative. NAMSS continues to watch these developments and looks forward to continuing to work with FSMB and other industry partners to continue to advance the credentialing and licensing processes.
