What do I need to do if I am applying for international adoption?

In your email message, please include all relevant doctors’ names. The cost is $50.00 per doctor and you will receive two copies of the verification for each doctor.

Should I call to ensure you received my online request?

This has a tendency to slow down the overall process. We email verifications immediately once they have been completed and paid for. What you really want to know is if the receiving end has processed it. If they have not received (or internally processed) the verification within two weeks, contact us and we will verify that the verification was emailed.

I took the exam in North Carolina. Can you send my scores?

If you took the North Carolina Licensing Exam prior to 1976, then you can request these scores by sending a written request along with a check or money order in the amount of $50.00 payable to the North Carolina Medical Board (please use this exact wording to ensure prompt processing of your payment). The North Carolina Licensing Exam is an older exam predating FLEX, SPEX and USMLE. If the exam you took in North Carolina was the FLEX, SPEX or USMLE Steps 1, 2, and 3, you will need to request these scores directly from the Federation of State Medical Boards, which is the repository for these exam scores.

What if another state (or agency) will not accept an online verification?

All state agencies are aware of our verification process and have approved it.

What if I need a “letter of good standing”, not a verification letter?

Different boards and credentialing agencies have different names or terminology for licensure verification, including “letter of good standing”. The terms verification and letter of good standing are equivalent for any medical or training license you hold in North Carolina, whether active or inactive. The NCMB has had no problems with other states or authorities refusing to accept its verifications.

What if I have a form that needs to be completed?

We do not accept paper verification requests forms. Please use our online verification process. You can access it here.
