NEW APPLICATIONS

THE GUAM BOARD OF MEDICAL EXAMINERS

The Guam Board of Medical Examiners joined the INTERSTATE MEDICAL LICENSURE COMPACT in February, 2018 to become the first U.S. territory to join the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact.

“We are encouraged by the continued expansion of the Compact both within the continental U.S. and outside it with the addition of Guam,” said Federation State Medical Board (FSMB) President and CEO Humayun Chaudhry, DO. “This is an opportunity for an island like Guam to ensure that its residents have access to quality health care, regardless of geographical challenges.”

Guam joins 22 states that have enacted legislation to expedite multi-state medical licensure since 2015. These states include Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

The initiative remains under consideration in Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Vermont and the District of Columbia.

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Commission’s application process officially went live on April 6, 2017, and its first license was issued on April 20, 2017. As of January 1, 2018, more than 750 medical licenses have been issued through the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact.

THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF INITIAL APPLICATIONS

A TEMPORARY LICENSE

Applying for a temporary license to practice on Guam allows for a faster application process.  The requirements are detailed via the link below.  A temporary license is generally intended for those seeking a rapid relocation to Guam.  It will allow you to get started while you work on providing the information and documentation needed for a full/permanent license.  Temporary licenses are valid for 90 days, are never renewed or extended and are only granted to an applicant one time.

A PERMANENT LICENSE

A permanent unrestricted application is required for all physicians practicing on Guam who are not working while holding a temporary license. The Guam Board of Medical Examiners is a member Board of the Federation of State Boards of Medical Boards.  The GBME participates in the Federation Credentials Verification Service ( FCVS) and encourages applicants to apply using the FCVS process.
