How Do I Get a House Physician License in Florida?

There are a couple of different ways to get your medical license in the state of Florida, according to the Florida Board of Medicine.

You can seek licensure by endorsement, as long as you have:

  • A degree from an international medical school, passed both parts of the NBME or ECFMG exams, performed a year of supervised clinical training, and finished a 2+ year-long residency,


  • Passed all parts of the NBME, FLEX, or USMLE and have a medical license in another jurisdiction while practicing medicine for a minimum of two of the past four years, or passed a clinical competency exam approved by the board in the last year, or finished a postgrad training program within the last two years.

You can also seek licensure by examination.
