Overview of the Licensure Process

The Minnesota Board of Medical Practice issues licenses/registrations to physicians (medical license, residency permit, telemedicine), physician assistants, acupuncturists, athletic trainers, naturopathic doctors, respiratory therapists, traditional midwives, and professional firms. There are currently 45,500 physicians, allied health professionals and professional firms regulated by the Board. In 2023, 4,580 licenses/registrations/permits were issued with every licensee reviewed and evaluated prior to being licensed. Each profession has its own practice act setting forth license/registration initial and continuing education or practice requirements, scope of practice, grounds for disciplinary action, and Council composition/duties.
