Ohio Medical License

The Ohio Medical Board on paper would seem to have one of the most streamlined and simple licensing processes in the Nation. Unfortunately for those physicians who apply to Ohio this is not the case. Why? Because the Ohio Board of Medicine mandates the use of FCVS to verify a physician's Medical School and Post Graduate Training. FCVS typically takes 3 to 6 months to set up a packet for Domestic Graduates and 3 to 12 months for International Graduates. One top of this, Ohio does not offer a temporary license to those Physicians who medical license application is complete with the exception of the FCVS packet. So if Physician has a job offer, then he or she is going to be sitting idle for 3 to 8 months while waiting for FCVS to complete their task.
