- Board of Registration in Medicine
Wakefield — During the pandemic, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine (Board) issued emergency temporary licenses under special authority due to the public health emergency. As the public health emergency has ended, the emergency temporary licenses expired on September 30, 2023.
Physicians who held an emergency temporary license had an opportunity to convert the emergency temporary license into a full license to practice in Massachusetts. The application for a full license and application fee had to be submitted to the Board on or before September 30, 2023. Physicians who submitted their application by September 30, 2023 date may continue to practice until the Board completes its review of the full license application. Physicians who did not submit an application for a full license by this deadline are not authorized to treat patients in Massachusetts beginning October 1, 2023.
