Medical License Renewal

It is imperative to keep your medical license up-to-date in order to continue providing patient care.  A renewal form will be mailed to you directly by the Washington State Department of Health. Please note “It is the responsibility of the licensee to renew their license, whether the notice has been received or not (WAC 246-12-030(4)).” 

You are responsible for sending the appropriate fees and any required documentation directly to the Washington State Department of Health. Please do not delay in sending these in and allow sufficient time for your renewal to be processed prior to the expiration date.

To contact Washington State Department of Health regarding your renewal form or any other questions, please call 360-236-4700 and for more information, please visit: http://www.doh.wa.gov/LicensesPermitsandCertificates/MedicalCommission/MedicalLicensing/Renewals.aspx.
