If your license has been inactive for greater than four years, the medical board has now implemented steps that you must take in order to have your license reactivated. These steps include having an active NCCPA certificate and taking a pre-approved board review course. If your license has been inactive for less than four years and you have maintained your certification status, we urge you to contact the medical board to have your license reactivated. If you are considering a temporary move out of clinical practice, we strongly advise that you do not let your license lapse. Whether you assume an administrative role, transition into an academic position, or take a job in a research setting it is important that you maintain your active licensure status. Even if you don’t plan to practice clinically, you can keep your license active as long as you maintain your national certification. For questions regarding licensure please contact the State Board of Medicine at the following location.
