Faculty Licensing & Clinical Privileges

For the most part, many of these renewals come in the mail or via email to the physician with plenty of notice (30 - 45 days or more) to complete and submit the paperwork. However, if you support a physician, it's always a good idea to know when these items are due to expire, and keep an eye out for the renewals.

Clinical Privileges at Stanford Health Care (SHC) - Every 2 years

Clinical Privileges at Stanford Children's Hospital (LPCH) - Every 2 years

Renewal notices come to the physician via email several months in advance. The email contains a link to the PHP (Practitioner's Hope Page) where the physician logs in and completes the renewal process. The PHP contains hyperlinks and instructions to help with the process.
