All medical examinations, diagnostic tests and demonstrations of physical ability must be performed and witnessed or reviewed by a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner licensed in the United States or one of the US territories.
Examinations, tests and demonstrations of physical ability witnessed or reviewed by chiropractors or naturopathic doctors, and holders of foreign medical licenses, chiropractors or naturopathic doctors are not accepted under current regulations. Examinations based solely on documentary and/or patient history reviews are also unacceptable.
There are errors that can delay your application for credentials or cause the application to be denied.
