Apply for my Limited License

Here are the forms, requirements, and next steps to apply for an initial Limited license.

A limited license is issued to physicians enrolled in post-graduate training programs in health care facilities.  

All such training must be done in ACGME accredited programs, or in a subspecialty clinical training or fellowship program in a training facility that has an approved program in the parent specialty.

A physician who holds or who has ever held a full Massachusetts license is not eligible for a limited license.

Fee for an Initial Limited License:  $100.00

For a description of license requirements and fees, see Licensing Fees and General Information.
