Applying for a Osteopathic License in the State of Washington
A horizontal line.

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

Due to limited staffing, the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgury takes at least 60 days to process osteopathic license applications and renewals. In order to minimize the time that it will take to process your application you must ensure that you precisely follow the instructions provided by the Board. As the instructions provided by the Board can often be confusing, the following summary has been provided to assist you in your application for licensure.

Step 1: If you are applying for the limited license, download and print the Limited License Post-Graduate Training Verification form. Fill this form out and submit this form to your program director to certify your status as a resident. Other than this, the application requirements for the limited and full osteopathic license are identical.

Step 2: Submit a sealed copy of your official osteopathic school transcript with your application. The transcripts must show that you have completed the program and your degree has been awarded.

Step 3: Download and print the Osteopathic License Application. Fill out each section completely and accurately. Attach a current photograph according to the instructions on the application. Send the application, attached photograph, a sealed copy of your transcripts, and licensing fee directly to the Board of Osteopathic Medicine & Surgery at the following address:

Board of Osteopathic Medicine & Surgery
P.O. Box 1099
Olympia, WA 98507-1099

Your application, photograph, transcripts and check for the application fee are the only forms you will send directly to the Board.

The following forms should be submitted if applicable:

  • Hospital Privilege Verification: required if you have been granted hospital privileges within the last five years. If this is the case, download and print copies of this form for each hospital where you were granted privileges. Fill out the appropriate sections of each form and send directly to the hospitals where privileges were granted.
  • Post Graduate Training Verification: required if you have completed post-graduate training in another state or province. If applicable, fill in the appropriate sections of this form and send directly to the post-graduate training director of that program.
  • State Licensure Verification: required if you have ever had a medical license in another state or province. If this is the case, download and print copies of this form for each state where you have held a medical license. Fill out the appropriate sections of each form and send directly to the state licensing board of each state where you held a license.

If you have any questions, or need additional information, please consult the instructions provided by the Board. Additional information can also be found on the Board of Osteopathic Medicine & Surgery web page. If you would like to check the status of your application, please contact (360) 236-4700 or hsqa.csc@doh.wa.gov.
