Alabama Medical License Requirements
WE MANAGE THE ENTIRE ALABAMA MEDICAL LICENSE PROCESS FROM START TO FINISH, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE FOLLOWING:
Your licensing advocate will research your entire professional history from Undergraduate School to date and match your credentials with contacts in our comprehensive database of over 31,000 schools, training programs, and hospitals. This facilitates the verification of your credentials with the Alabama Medical Board. We also research Medical License numbers, issue dates, and expiration dates.
Your Alabama medical license application, as well as all letters and forms necessary to request verification of your credentials for the Alabama medical board, are professionally completed by your licensing advocate.
We will provide detailed instructions for any step of the process that must be completed by you. In most cases, all that will ever be required of you is a signature, notarization, photograph or fingerprinting. Your licensing advocate will handle the rest of the details of your process.
The Alabama Medical License process requires numerous primary source verifications. Your licensing advocate will request and collect all that is needed for your Alabama Medical License. This could include undergraduate transcripts, medical school transcripts and verifications, professional reference letters, letter of good standing from other licensing boards, examination transcripts, postgraduate training evaluations, hospital staff evaluations, employment verification, AMA profile, NPDB query, federation query, malpractice claims history report/documents and any other verification required for your Alabama Medical License.
Your Alabama Medical License application process is tracked from start to finish. This includes following up with the Alabama Medical Board and each facility providing verification of your credentials to the medical board. Continuous follow up is one of the most important steps necessary to ensure accurate and timely processing of your Alabama Medical License application and credential verification requests
Your Alabama Medical License application will be assigned to one licensing advocate in our office who will be your point of contact throughout the entire application process.

Alabama is a “Ten Year Rule” state.
If it has been over ten years since you successfully completed a written licensing examination, you will need to have passed a monitored exam to be eligible for an Alabama Medical License.
Most physicians will satisfy this requirement by initial AMA or AOA-approved specialty board certification or recertification.
If it has been over ten years since you successfully completed a written licensing exam and you have NOT been certified or recertified by an AMA or AOA-approved specialty board within the last ten years, you are not eligible for licensure in Alabama until you have successfully completed the SPEX exam.
