Physician Licensure Information

Applicants applying for a temporary or permanent license need to contact The Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure (MSBML). Call 601-987-3079 for assistance.

The process of obtaining a medical license can be time consuming and challenging. Physicians seeking initial licensure or applying for a medical licensure in another state should anticipate delays due to the investigation of credentials and past practice as well as the need to comply with licensing standards.

Physicians applying for a permanent or temporary licensure should submit an application and paperwork 3-4 months prior to the date they plan to practice in-state.
