Having multiple state licenses can be useful when you’re working clinically doing telemedicine and locums tenens. For certain nonclinical careers, having a specific state license or multiple licenses can be a critical factor in getting hired. For example, if you’re looking to work in utilization management (UM), an ideal background may not be enough to land a job. The state you are licensed in may not be highly sought after by these companies. This is what was happening to today’s guest, Dr. April Palmer, who was losing out on UM opportunities because she only had one state license and it was not in high demand. Dr. Palmer is here to discuss how the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) can be a solution. She shares with us the process she went through to obtain multiple licenses, how you can get started on this journey, and the costs involved.
In this episode we’re talking about:
- What the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) is
- How Dr. Palmer knew she was ready for a career change
- The time and cost involved in obtaining multiple state licenses
- April’s path to a career in utilization management
