Overview of the Licensure Process

The Texas Medical Board uses the License Inquiry System of Texas (LIST), an online communication system, to correspond with physician licensure applicants. LIST provides detailed explanations of any items required to process an individual’s physician licensure application, and provides a message center where applicants and Board staff can exchange messages. Messages are archived in LIST for later reference.

Due to the high volume of calls and mail received by the Board, we ask that you not call the board to confirm receipt of mailed items but check the list of items required in your LIST account.  Depending on the volume of incoming mail, it may be several days before an analyst is able to process your mailed items.  Your consideration of this request will assist us in decreasing our processing times.

We recommend using one of the private overnight delivery services that allow tracking to submit all required items. These services require delivery to a physical address and a phone number. Delivery by a private overnight service to our physical address usually allows you to obtain immediate online confirmation of delivery from the carrier.

Items mailed through the US Postal Service (regular, certified, express, or overnight), must be addressed to our mailing address, or they will be returned to the sender. A vendor signs for and delivers these items to our agency. Even if a tracking mechanism is used, the signature confirming receipt of items delivered to the mailing address will be that of a vendor employee, making confirmation of delivery to the TMB more difficult.
