- Board of Registration in Medicine
Wakefield — Effective January 1, 2020, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine is requiring physician initial full license applicants to also complete an application through the Federation Credentials Verification Service (“FCVS”). FCVS verifies documents related to a physician’s identity, medical education (including the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) profile, if applicable), postgraduate training and examination history directly from the primary source.
Physicians applying for a Massachusetts full license must either complete an initial application with FCVS at https://www.fsmb.org/fcvs/ or, if there is an existing FCVS profile, check to see if the FCVS profile must be updated. Physician applicants must designate the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine to receive the FCVS “Medical Professional Information Profile”.
