New Hampshire Medical Board

New Hampshire Medical License Requirements & Fees
  1. All applicants for licensure in New Hampshire are required to submit their background credentials
    to the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS). FCVS is a service of the Federation of
    State Medical Boards, a non-profit organization representing the 70 medical and osteopathic boards of
    the United States and its territories. FCVS was created to help simplify the licensure process for
    physicians (both MDs and DOs).
    By eliminating the re-verification of documents that never change, physicians benefit from a shortened
    credentialing process when applying to another state board. This profile can be updated and sent to
    boards and other entities as needed. Currently, 55 medical boards accept FCVS profiles in lieu of the
    applicant providing original credentials for verification. New Hampshire and 13 other state boards require
    all applicants to use FCVS for credentials verification.
    FCVS requires a one-time submission of education and training documents directly to a depository
    maintained by FSMB. The documents verified and securely stored include:
    • Identity
    • Medical Education
    • Postgraduate Training
    • Board Action/Disciplinary History
    • ABMS Board Certification
    • ECFMG Certification (if applicable)
    • Exam History (state licensing authorities only)
  2. All applicants must also complete the Uniform Application for Physician State Licensure (UA),
    another service provided by FSMB. Similar to FCVS, the UA eliminates redundancy when applying to
    multiple participating states. After completing the UA for the first time, your application is securely stored
    and can be resubmitted to another board without reentering the same information. You would make
    updates as needed and complete board-specific requirements.
  3. In addition to the FCVS and UA applications and processes, you must submit additional
    information directly to the Board. The Board will use this information, along with the FCVS profile, to
    assess your qualifications for licensure. The Board conducts an independent background investigation. Please allow a minimum of 8 weeks for the entire licensure process to be completed. If you have malpractice or disciplinary history, it can take an additional 2 or 3 months for all pertinent documentation to be received.

The Board meets and reviews applications on the first Wednesday of each month. Only applications that are
complete, including all outside verifications, will be forwarded to the Board for review. The agenda for Board
consideration is closed at 4:00 pm the Friday before the Board meets. Applications completed after 4:00 pm the
Friday before the Board meets will be placed on the next month’s agenda. Faxed materials are not acceptable.
Licenses will be issued within 7-10 working days following the Board meeting and are emailed to the address
furnished in your application. You are responsible for notifying the Board office, in writing, if your address(s)
changes in the interim.

Please continue to review the remaining portions of this application packet for instructions and other materials
necessary to complete the Board application. If you have questions about this application process or would like to
check on the status of your Board application, please call the Board at (603) 271-6935.

Since the FCVS application process is fairly lengthy, and unless you already have an FCVS profile, you may want
to apply for a temporary license in New Hampshire. A temporary license, if issued, is valid for only 6 months and
requires you to provide a completed application, with the exception of the FCVS application, and additional
information as follows:

  1. Evidence of qualifications as follows:
    1. Proof of a full, unrestricted medical license in another state received directly from the state
      licensing authority indicating that the applicant’s license covers the dates in which he or she is
      practicing in New Hampshire; or
    2. Certified copies of medical degree diploma, proof of 2 years of postgraduate training which meet
      the requirements of Med 302.01, and proof that you have passed one of the licensure
      examinations listed under Med 303.01.
  2. Proof that you have applied to the FCVS with full intent to complete the FCVS process; and
  3.  The temporary license fee of $50.00. Make check payable to TREASURER, STATE OF NEW
    HAMPSHIRE. Please submit one check for the temporary license fee ($50.00) which is nonrefundable and a separate check for the full license application fee ($320.00).
  4. If the Board receives the FCVS before the initial application is completed, then you are not eligible
    for a temporary license.

** Before applying for the temporary license, please contact the New Hampshire facility you are applying
at to confirm that they accept the temporary license.

Before completing the application process, please review the following requirements for licensure in New Hampshire:

  • Obtained the M.D./D.O. degree or its equivalent as determined by the Board.
  • Completed at least 2 years of postgraduate training in the U.S. or Canada approved by the Board, or its
    equivalent as determined by the Board.
  • Successfully passed a national licensing examination sequence (or its acceptable hybrid combination) as
    approved by the Board on each examination, including:
    • National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Part I, II and III.
    • Pre-1985 FLEX or FLEX Component 1 and 2;
    • USMLE Step 1, 2 and 3.
      o NBOME Part I, II and III (or COMLEX).
    • Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC).

If you do not meet, or have questions about these requirements, please contact the Board prior to submitting your application.

  1. All documents you submit must be originals, signed on letterhead unless notarized copies are specifically
    authorized.
  2. You will receive an acknowledgment letter once your application has been received. This letter will advise
    you of what information, if any, is outstanding at that time. If you do not receive an acknowledgment letter
    within 30 days, please contact the Board between 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. EST.
  3. With the acknowledgement letter, you will receive paperwork to complete a criminal background check.
    Pursuant to RSA 329:11-a, you are required to submit a notarized criminal history record release
    form, along with a fee, which authorizes the release of your criminal history record, if any, to the
    Board. This form will be provided to you with your acknowledgment letter once your application
    has been received by the Board. PLEASE NOTE: the criminal history submitted to the Board from
    the N.H. Division of State Police shall only be valid for three (3) months from the time it’s received
    in the Board’s office.
  4. Make a check, postal or express money order (in U.S. funds only) for the application fee of $320.00
    payable to: TREASURER, STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE and staple it to the upper left-hand corner of
    the first page of the addendum. This application fee is non-refundable. [NOTE: This is the Board
    application fee. The FCVS verification fee is an additional and separate fee paid directly to FCVS.]
    New Hampshire Board of Medicine Uniform Application Instructions and Checklist
    Revised 4/19/22 Page 3 of 5
    (An additional $50.00 fee is required if requesting a temporary license. Please submit one check
    for the temporary license fee ($50) and a separate check for the full license application fee ($320)
  5. Obtain original letters of reference, on letterhead and addressed to the board, from the following: The
    chief medical officer or president of the medical staff in every hospital in which you currently hold staff
    privileges OR letters of reference from 2 practicing physicians.
    Reference letters must be originals, submitted on letterhead and addressed to the board.
    References may be submitted by the applicant or by the physician providing the reference.
  6. Submit a notarized copy of your American Board of Medical Specialty Certificate(s), if applicable.
  7. Submit your curriculum vitae.
  8. Submit a notarized copy of your current Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) certificate.

Your application process is not considered complete until your Board application, licensure verification(s), and
FCVS Physician Information Profile are received in a manner satisfactory to the Board. The Board will not
accelerate processing of one applicant at the expense of others for any reason. Once completed, your application
will be reviewed at the first available Board meeting. Please allow 7-10 working days following the Board meeting
for your license to be mailed to you.
Note: Do NOT make commitments to start practicing medicine in New Hampshire until you have been
issued a license.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE BOARD APPLICATION

To work on your FCVS application for credentials verification, visit https://portal.fsmb.org/MyFsmb/ and click on the FCVS graphic, then sign in. You may also visit http://www.fsmb.org/ and click on FCVS in the Licensure menu to access the portal page. Please note: Designations to Self are for receiving your own copy of the profile.

Boards do not accept Self designations. If you are using FCVS for the first time, complete an Initial FCVS Application. 

If you are updating your existing FCVS profile, complete a Subsequent FCVS Application. During the application process, designate your profile to be received by the New Hampshire Board of Medicine. A profile with a Self designation will not be accepted.

For assistance with FCVS, use the messaging tool within FCVS or call 888-275-3287 with your FCVS ID number between 8am and 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

To work on your Uniform Application for licensure, visit https://portal.fsmb.org/MyFsmb/ and click on the UA graphic, then sign in. You may also visit http://www.fsmb.org/ and click on Uniform Application in the Licensure menu to access the portal page.

For UA assistance, see the UA FAQ at http://www.fsmb.org/licensure/uniform-application/faq. If your issue is not listed, contact UA customer service at 800-793 7939 or ua@fsmb.org with a description of the problem. If you see an error message, please email a screenshot.

  • You will be asked to complete a chronology of activities of all working and non-working time since medical
    school graduation and provide details of any malpractice liability claims. Having this information on hand
    before you begin will help you to complete the UA more efficiently. Failure to submit all required
    information and documentation will result in processing delays.
    New Hampshire Board of Medicine Uniform Application Instructions and Checklist
    Revised 4/19/22 Page 4 of 5
  • If not pre-filled, provide your home address and a separate address for business or postgraduate training.
    Both Board Contact and Public Access selections must be made but you can use the same address for
    each selection. All home addresses must be domestic, as fingerprint cards and other background
    information are mailed there.
  • The Board is required to obtain your SSN for the purpose of child support enforcement and in compliance
    with RSA 161-B:11. This collection of your SSN is mandatory.
  • If not pre-filled, enter each training program in the United States and Canada in either the ACGME
    Training page or the Other Training page. Enter postgraduate programs outside of the United States and
    Canada on the Chronology page.
  • You are not able to add or edit MD or DO license information in the UA because that information is sent
    directly from the state boards into the FSMB system. If changes are needed, email ua@fsmb.org with the
    correct information. Depending on volume of license update requests, it may take 1-3 business days for
    the changes to appear in your UA. Do not enter MD or DO license information under “Other”.
  • If you hold a medical or osteopathic license or licenses in countries outside of the United States or
    Canada, provide that information on a separate sheet of paper to the Board.
  • Your Chronology of Activities should cover each of your activities (non-working time included) from
    medical school graduation to present. Previously listed medical school and postgraduate training
    programs will pre-fill the Chronology. Do not leave gaps. For each entry, use the first day of the month for
    start and end dates unless you know the exact date. If you have military or locum tenens assignments, list
    each location separately.
  • Clinical time indicates time spent seeing patients and practicing medicine. Administrative time indicates
    time spent on paperwork, research, or teaching.
    • Leave the malpractice liability claims section blank only if you have had no claims. List all pending claims.
  • Upon accepting the Terms and Agreement and submitting the UA, first time UA users will be taken to a
    payment page for the one-time service charge. This charge sustains the UA program and is separate
    from FCVS and state board licensing fees.
  • For a copy of your receipt, click on the “Home” link to return to the portal page, which will now have a
    Payment link to all FSMB receipts in the upper right corner.
  • To open your UA for editing and resubmitting to a board, or for submitting to a new board, sign in and
    choose the appropriate board in the State Board section. Reselect the US Citizen query on the
    Identification page (it resets each time a UA is submitted), make changes as needed, then submit or
    resubmit your UA.
  • Refer to the UA FAQ at https://www.fsmb.org/licensure/uniform-application/faq for answers to the most
    common UA questions. If your issue isn’t listed, contact UA customer service at 800-793-7939 or email
    ua@fsmb.org with your username and a description of your issue. Provide a screenshot for each error
    you see.
  • Submit a notarized UA Affidavit and Authorization for Release of Information form to the Board. The UA
    Affidavit is separate from the FCVS Affidavit and must be sent to the Board, not to FCVS or FSMB. Follow
    the instructions on the form.
  • Have each full, temporary, training, or limited healthcare or profession license or certification you have
    ever held in the United States or Canada verified by the granting board, whether the license is currently
    active or inactive. To determine the fees and preferred verification method for each board, use the
    resource at http://www.fsmb.org/licensure/uniform-application/. If a board uses VeriDoc or other electronic
    New Hampshire Board of Medicine Uniform Application Instructions and Checklist
    Revised 4/19/22 Page 5 of 5
    format for verifications, do not use the UA verification form. PLEASE NOTE: the verification shall only
    be valid for six (6) months from the time it’s received in the Board’s office.
  • Complete the FCVS initial or subsequent application.
  • Complete all other board requirements as instructed.
