Before attempting to renew a license through the Compact, it is important that you read these details:
- You may not renew any licenses through the Compact that were not obtained through the Compact. If you are unsure how you obtained your medical license, please contact the state medical board that issued the license.
- You are responsible for knowing the renewal dates and fees for any licenses you wish to renew through the Compact.
- The physician holding the medical license must be the person answering questions on the renewal form, below, as they are attested to under penalty of perjury. This applies to each state license being renewed.
If you are able to confirm the three items above, you may renew a license using the Compact.
Step 1. Provide basic contact information and submit payment. See form below. You will be charged a $25.00 application fee in addition to the state's renewal fee.
Step 2. The issuing state board will verify your information and determine if you are qualified for a renewal. You will receive an email of the results.

The IMLCC has prepared an educational video that walks through the renewal application. It is recommended that you watch this video prior to starting your renewal application.
Many boards have a specific window during which a license held can be renewed through the IMLC. For those boards, after the IMLC renewal window closes, as determined by the board, you will not be able to renew your license using the IMLC renewal process. Instead, you most contact the board directly to receive instructions about options to renew your license. The IMLCC is aware of the following boards that have recently closed their IMLC renewal window:
- South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners - http://www.sdbmoe.gov
