Medical Staff Credentialing & Privileging

Credentialing is the process of evaluating what the practitioner brings to the organization.  Privileging is what the organization allows the practitioner to do.
The process of credentialing and privileging is important - it is how we determine that those caring for our patients are currently clinically competent to do so.  As an applicant, all the information you need on how to begin the process can be found in this informational Powerpoint

Maine Practitioner Licensure Information

The link for the Boards of allopathic and osteopathic medical licensure are listed below; full information on how to apply for a license is on their respective websites.  It is very important to begin the license application process early.  Do not wait until you have a license to submit your application for the Medical Staff – we can process our application while the license application is pending.
