What To Know About Licensure

Oregon

Oregon licensure takes about 90 days. The Oregon Board meets once each quarter --- typically the second or third week of January, April, July and October. The Board requires that your application, fees and all documentation be submitted well before (usually a month or so) the Board meeting.

Physicians for whom it's been over 10 years since board certification or recertification, taking of the SPEX exam will be required.
