Applicants for Permanent Physician Licensure:

NEW & IMPORTANT:  Effective February 1, 2022, the Maine Board of Osteopathic Licensure will require that those applying for permanent licensure utilize the FSMB's Federation Credentials Verification Service.

To apply:  Click on the 'Apply for licensure in one or more states' link below and follow the instructions to apply through the Maine Board of Osteopathic Licensure.   Please be sure to thoroughly review the UA instructions and checklist.

Note:  In 2018, the Board ended its requirement that an applicant have verification of other state licenses submitted on their behalf when applying for a Maine osteopathic license. License verification is now handled by Board staff with one exception: In cases where an applicant was the subject of a Board action, he or she must provide all information related to that action. 

The fee for a permanent license application is $350 (a minimal fee will be charged by the processing company inforME).  Checks are accepted but online payment at the time of Addendum completion is preferred; 

Applicants must use the Affidavit & Reference forms for this Board (reference letters are not accepted). 

IMPORTANT: Maine does not accept e-notarized documents.  The applicant must be in the direct presence of the notary. 

These forms are part of the Uniform Application instructions but are provided here in case needed again.
