Minnesota Board of Medical Practice to Discontinue Temporary Registration

The Minnesota Board of Medical Practice is moving to real time registration effective December 15, 2016.  The temporary permit/license/registration option has been discontinued for the following professions:

  • Acupuncture (temporary permit)
  • Athletic Trainer (temporary permit)
  • Naturopathic Doctor (temporary registration)
  • Physician (temporary permit)
  • Physician Assistant (temporary license)
  • Respiratory Therapist (temporary permit)
  • Traditional Midwife (temporary permit)

The Board has authorized issuance of a full license/registration for a regulated professional upon verification that the applicant satisfactorily demonstrates that all minimum requirements have been met.  Because a full license/registration no longer requires ratification at a meeting of the Board, issuance of a temporary credential is unnecessary. 

Fee payment, submitted on or after December 15, 2016, for a temporary permit/license/registration will be returned.
