State Medical Licensure Process

The process for applying for your state medical license is listed below.

(Please allow at least 90 days for processing)
*Please request receipts and keep all documentation of payment for reimbursement purposes upon your start date.

Step 1 - Complete the application for the state licensure  and request a temporary license as well.

Indiana Medical Licensure  

Step 2 - Go to the Federation of State Medical Boards Credentialing Verification Service (FCVS) and set up an account with a user name and password. The state of Kentucky requires you to complete the FCVS process before applying for your KY state license. All M.D.'s will need to fill out the online application and all other necessary information.

Once the information is completed the FCVS will complete screenings, verifications, processing and then send the information to one designated source which will be either the Kentucky and/or Indiana state medical licensure board.  At any time you can choose additional designations but there will be an additional charge per designation. Norton will only reimburse the fee if the candidate is required to apply for both the Kentucky (KY) and Indiana (IN) state medical licenses.
