Licensing Update:- Breaking News
The Arizona Medical Board met on October 8th, 2014 and voted to resume processing and issuing initial licenses effective immediately to applicants meeting all statutory requirements for licensure, with the exception of the FBI criminal background check. These applicants will be issued an Arizona medical license on a provisional basis with the following stipulations: requiring applicants to sign a notarized attestation that there are no undisclosed criminal convictions in other states or countries; requiring applicants to submit a signed statement acknowledging that failure to disclose such information will result in discipline and/or revocation of licensure; additionally, requiring applicants to undergo a third party background check by an entity other than the FBI. The board staff is in the process of investigating and determining the entity that will conduct the criminal background check. Applicants granted a license under these terms and conditions are subject to additional processing once the Board receives approval to obtain criminal background checks from the FBI.
