Win: Tennessee enacts the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact will make it easier for approved Tennessee physicians to practice across state lines.

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact was signed into law in Tennessee easing the administrative burdens for physicians interested in holding licenses to practice medicine in multiple states.

The AOA and the Tennessee Osteopathic Medical Association jointly supported Tennessee House Bill 664, which enacted the compact.

The focus of the compact is to make health care more accessible to patients in underserved or rural areas. The compact allows medical experts to use telemedicine to reach patients across state lines.

Want to see if you can get multistate licensure through the compact? Take the quiz. See here for a breakdown of multistate licensure costs and fees.
