Here's How the Physician Compact Works

Currently, there are 20 states in the physician compact, but other states are in the process of joining. Once you become licensed in one of the states who are part of the compact, you can easily become licensed in the other members of the IMLC. When you're ready to cross state lines and work as a physician in another state, you can do so in as little as two weeks, hence avoiding the lengthy licensing process that can take up to a year in some locations.“
