With the Michigan Medical Board,
MedLicense.com is averaging 45 to 90 days for the issuance of a
Michigan Medical License from the submission of the application
to the Medical Board to the issuance of the Physician Michigan Medical License for
Domestic Graduates. International Graduates who cannot apply via
Reciprocity might take longer due to the direct certification of
the International Medical School.
The Michigan Medical Board has one of the slower Mail Systems in the USA. Only Illinois and New York rival the inefficiency of the Michigan State Education Department. When a certification arrives, irregardless of the delivery method, the Medical Board will not receive and log in the certification for 2 to 6 weeks depending on the current incoming mail load and time of year. The busiest time of the year for Michigan and other Medical Boards is from May to August. This is due to the mass of applications which are filed by Residents who are graduating or seeking to moon light in Michigan. Because of this the minimum time frame for the issuance of a Michigan Medical License runs around 45 days. Very few applications for Domestic Graduates surpass the 90 day mark from the point of filing with MedLicense.com unless the physician graduated from an International Medical School which is not responding to the certification requests.
Michigan is the only Medical Board in the USA which offers "True Reciprocity". If a physician has held a USA or Canadian Medical License (Full Active) for 10 or more years, then Michigan will issue a license based solely on the Physician's past Licensure History. This means that the Doctor does not have to verify the Medical School, ECFMG, Internship/Residency/Fellowship, or Exam Scores. As such the requirements for these are dropped by the Michigan Medical Board. A physician who is an International Medical School Graduate is treated the same way as a Domestic Medical School graduate if the doctor has held a State Medical Board License for 10 or more years.
Michigan has ruled that Puerto Rico Medical Licenses will not be considered for Reciprocity due to the Fraud that was discovered in 2006 with members of the Puerto Rico Medical Board selling examination scores to Physicians.
