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 North Carolina Medical Board. We also research Medical License numbers, issue dates, and expiration dates.
Your North Carolina medical license application, as well as all letters and forms necessary to request verification of your credentials for the North Carolina 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.
