AMA Expresses Support for the FSMB Interstate Licensure Compact
At its 2014 Interim Meeting, the American Medical Association (AMA) expressed support for the FSMB Interstate Licensure Compact. AMA President Elect Steven J. Stack, MD, stated, “At least 10 state medical boards have adopted the compact, which streamlines the licensing process for physicians seeking licenses in multiple states and increases patient access to telemedicine services. We encourage more states to sign on to the compact so that we can ensure standards of care are maintained, whether treatment is provided in-person or via telemedicine.” Read the full press release from the AMA at the link below.
