If the physician’s job does not include any act as defined in this rule as “clinical medicine”, a License Limited to the practice of Administrative Medicine is required.

The fee for this temporary license shall be $400 (plus the $700 permanent application fee), payable at the time of application.

Instructions for Maine Physicians: Register for fingerprinting online at https://me.ibtfingerprint.com/. If you do not register, you will not be able to have your fingerprints taken.

You may apply for a reinstatement if your license has lapsed or if you have withdrawn your license within the last five years. Please download the appropriate form and follow the attached instructions.

To be eligible to reinstate your license you will have to provide evidence of having actively engaged in the practice of medicine for the 12 months preceding the reinstatement application, or you will have to demonstrate current competency by passing a written examination or other practical demonstration as the Board may prescribe. You will also have to provide evidence of having achieved at least 40 category I CME credits in the prior 24 months.
