Help is Available for Applying for or Transferring Medical or Professional Licensure
Busy healthcare professionals often lack the time that is required to dig through and process the requirements for transferring and applying for medical and professional licenses. Some states offer reciprocity, but even when this is the case, the process is still complicated and tedious.
You know you should pursue your license. But you get busy, your career takes off, and things seem to be moving along well without it. Licensure gets buried at the bottom of your “to do list.” But this is an important step and should be taken on with care.
We understand, and we know someone who can help!
How Does This Work?
Completing an application for professional licensure is a huge first step. After this is done, there are many more activities that will need your attention. These additional steps can be very overwhelming. Some of these may include:
- Contacting supervisors to confirm supervision hours
- Contacting colleges and universities to acquire certified official transcripts
- Confirming certifications or continuing education credits
- Acquiring certified official test scores
- Contacting schools to get course syllabi for confirmation that academic courses meet the requirements of the state’s licensure qualifications
- Contacting department heads to request letters of explanation for why a course on a transcript (perhaps one where no syllabi is available) meets the requirements of the state’s licensure qualifications
- Finding and providing study materials for a jurisprudence exam
- Providing access to the exam
- Discussing options with the licensure board if an applicant’s application is deficient in some way (ex: a required course was not part of professional’s schooling)
- Obtaining accurate records of any lapses in licensure
- Obtaining accurate documentation of any formal complaints, or other issues
- Making sure license process is not getting unnecessarily held up in review
- And many, many more!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: After I hire you, how involved will I need to be in the process?
A: This expert team will need you to provide them with basic information in order to help you. If your demographic information is recorded in a database like CAQH, that will provide a great starting point. If some necessary information is missing, they can help you track it down. Throughout the process, they will be doing the heavy lifting, but they will likely need your involvement from time to time.
Q: How do I know what you are doing for me?
A: They will allow you to see every phone call, email, document, note, etc. This enables them to offer you 100% transparency.
Q: Can I contact you if I have questions?
A: Of course! You will be appointed a senior licensing professional, who you can call directly, or email anytime.
Q: Can’t I just do this myself?
A: You can indeed! But if you choose to have help, this team is here to assist those who are busy, or would otherwise not enjoy spending their time on the technical and administrative task of transferring a license or applying for licensure.
Q: Am I allowed to use a service like this? Will the licensure board view this poorly?
A: You are 100% permitted. The service we recommend is similar to what would be customarily provided by a large hospital system. The licensure board has no reason to look down on using our services. It is simply a smart choice.
Q: Can you help me transfer a counseling license?
A: Absolutely! These team members are very familiar with the licensure process of behavioral health providers, including Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC), Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC), Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors (LCPC), Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers (LICSW), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), and many others. They understand that a designation in one state (such as LPC, LCSW) might not be interpreted as the same level of certification on another state and can help you navigate the challenges these nomenclature variants can cause.
Q: Is this service guaranteed?
A: This team cannot guarantee the approval of any application for licensure. Whether your license is approved is 100% in the hands of your professional licensure board. These members are skilled assistants who will help you get organized. They will put your licensure application together in a professional package and then monitor the process for you.
Q: Can you help with international healthcare and medical professionals?
A: Yes, they can! They would love to help you with any unique situation. Please be aware that such licensure application processes often take more time than normal domestic license transfers.
