WE MANAGE THE ENTIRE Iowa 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 Iowa Medical Board. We also research Medical License numbers, issue dates, and expiration dates.
Your Iowa medical license application, as well as all letters and forms necessary to request verification of your credentials for the Iowa 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 Iowa Medical License process requires numerous primary source verifications. Your licensing advocate will request and collect all that is needed for your Iowa 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 Iowa Medical License.
Your Iowa Medical License application process is tracked from start to finish. This includes following up with the Iowa 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 Iowa Medical License application and credential verification requests
Your Iowa 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. In addition to receiving milestone updates from your licensing advocate, additional updates are always a simple phone call or email away.
