The State of Wisconsin Medical Examining Board is pleased to offer the new online application process for medical and osteopathic physicians called the Uniform Application for Physician State Licensure (UA). The UA will benefit physicians by reducing redundancy in filling out multiple applications when applying for licensure in multiple states. Physicians will be able to apply to multiple states by filling out the UA once, then directing it to additional states. Physicians applying via OLAS can import their UA information into their Wisconsin license application, leaving only the state-specific instructions and addendums of the application to be completed. Visit the Federation of State Medical Boards’ website for further information.
