- The physician can become board certified and complete the requirements needed.
- The physician can take the SPEX exam if they have not taken their medical exam within the last 10 years. The SPEX exam is an exam that tests the physician’s general knowledge of medicine. The SPEX exam is time consuming and may require months of study, which can delay the processing time for an application for licensure.
Our licensing department maintains a database of all the American Board of Medical Specialties that states consider board certified.
If your certification is not on the list, feel free to contact one our Barton licensing specialists. We can assist you in figuring out if you are considered board certified and if the state where you are applying recognizes your board certification. Stay safe out in that jungle, and stay tuned for more to come in Part 2 where we will discuss Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS).
