As of 2015, to file for a Texas Medical Board physician’s license, apply online at the Texas Medical Board website, explains the Texas Medical Board. Wait for the Licensure Inquiry System of Texas, or LIST, username and password to submit any additional information.
Applying for a full physician’s license with the Texas Medical Board involves a two-stage process for prelicensure or screening and licensing, according to the Texas Medical Board. Submit any supplemental forms if the board requires it from you after you submit your online application. Depending on the form, send the supplemental form to the correct third-party such as a liability carrier or medical school. You can check the LIST system to verify when the board receives your documents. Take the Jurisprudence Exam, and send off your national criminal history background check and fingerprints to the board once you pass the exam.
You must have at least one year of post-graduate training, reports the Federation of State Medical Boards. Also, you can only attempt taking the licensing exam three times. However, there are exceptions to this rule, including if you have another state license in good standing for at least five years. You also need to pay the estimated $1,000 application fee.
