Multistate physician license may yet become easier

Physician licensure for physicians practicing in multiple states has been a difficult proposition to this point, with varying requirements for licensure in each individual state, the cost of licensure being what it is despite perhaps seeing only a few patients in each state. However, there continues to be some movement towards easing that process. According to an article in Newswise at http://www.newswise.com/articles/eight-states-formally-introduce-legislation-to-speed-physician-licensing-across-state-lines, some state legislatures are viewing passage of the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, model legislation that would speed the process of issuing licenses for physicians who wish to practice in multiple states. In nine state, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Wyoming, the model legislation has been recently introduced.
