Renewing a Full Medical License in the State of Washington (MD)
A horizontal line.

The following are instructions and forms for renewing a full medical license. If you are renewing a limited medical license, osteopathic license or are applying for a license, please go to the licensing page and select the appropriate option.

Full medical licenses expire after two years on your birthdate. The process for renewing a full license is based on a license renewal reminder sent by the Medical Quality Assurance Commission. The Commission will detail what documentation they require for your renewal and whether any documentation of CME credit is required. Remember that serving as a resident is sufficient to fufill all Category I CME requirements. It is the resident's responsibility to begin the renewal process as soon as possible after receiving your renewal reminder. If you do not receive your renewal reminder 8 weeks prior to the expiration of your license, please contact the Commission. Residents without a valid license on file will be pulled from clinical services and may not receive credit for rotations.

Step 1: Submit a check for a two-year renewal (be sure to write your license number in the memo field of your check) for $657 to Commission at the following address:

Washington State Department of Health
Medical Quality Assurance Commission
P.O. Box 1099
Olympia, WA 98507-1099

Step 2: Follow up. If you have not received your renewed license after 3 weeks, please call the Commission to determine the status of your renewal.

Phone: (360) 236-2750
Fax: (360) 236-4818

Step 3: Provide a copy of your renewed license to the residency office.

If you have any questions, or need additional information, please call the Commission. For a listing of the fees and contact information, please consult the Medical Quality Assurance Commission web page.
