Important Information Regarding D.O. License Renewal

After you renew your license you may notice your license status has been changed to “Renewal Deficient”. This is an Active license status. It means your renewal is administratively incomplete. A letter or email will be sent to you noting the deficiencies. The correspondence will also include instructions for completing the renewal process.

Deficiencies may include one or more of the following:

  • An unchecked box on your application;
  • Unpaid renewal fee and/or late fee payment (if applicable);
  • Missing documentation of completed Continuing Medical Education (if randomly selected for audit); and/or
  • Missing documentation regarding any “Yes” answers on the Questionnaire and Confidential Questionnaire sections of the renewal application.

Your license cannot be renewed until your renewal application is administratively complete. If your license expires before a timely and sufficient renewal application is submitted to the Board, you must cease practicing medicine in Arizona and must reapply for and receive a new Arizona license before resuming the practice of medicine in the State of Arizona.


2018-2019 License Renewal

May 1, 2018 is the end of the renewal cycle for those with a December 31, 2017 renew by date.

If you did not renew your license before the deadline and desire to be licensed in Arizona, you must re-apply using the Initial License Application. Please contact the Board’s licensing division with any questions.

For licensees with a renew-by date of 12/31/2018, forms will be made available by November 1, 2018.
