California Medical License
The Medical Board of California (MBC) will no longer accept and process paper application forms for the:
· Postgraduate Training License (PTL) or
· Application to Transition from a Postgraduate Training License to a Physician’s and Surgeon’s License.
Paper applications postmarked on or after February 1, 2023, will be mailed back to the applicant with any payment received.
The switch to a paperless application process helps both applicants and the Board by increasing the efficiency of the review process, enhancing security, and reducing costs and impact to the environment.
If you do not yet have a Social Security number, email the webmaster at email@example.com to request the PTL paper application. You will need to indicate in your email that you do NOT have a US Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) and will need the paper application mailed to you.
