Resident Training License Renewal

Requirements

Residents must renew their training licenses annually prior to their birthday. Residents may renew up to 45 days before their birthday.

Late renewal may cause the resident’s training license to lapse.

You should check the renewal policy of your individual institution which may be different from the NC Medical Board’s renewal policy.

If you are in the process of applying for a full license, you should renew your training license, at a lesser fee, to avoid having to renew a full license.  Renewal of your training license will carry over to the full license once the full license has been approved.

Process

Residents renew online through the Board’s website. Residents are notified by their Graduate Medical Education (GME) office prior to their renewal date. If you do not know your File ID# you may recover it by clicking the button at right. After logging in to the renewal system, residents will be prompted to answer a series of questions. The renewal process typically takes 10-15 minutes and residents pay their renewal fee by MasterCard/VISA.

Fees

The annual renewal fee for a resident training license is $125.  Residents may renew up to 45 days before their birthday.  Residents who fail to renew by their birthday must pay a $50 late fee in addition to the renewal fee.  Late renewal may cause the resident training license to lapse.

You should check the renewal policy of you individual institution which may be different from the NC Medical Board’s renewal policy.

CME

A licensee currently enrolled in an AOA or Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited graduate medical education program is exempt from the CME requirements.
