Certification Letters

Certification letters provide written verification of licensure and are used to provide documentation to any requesting party with the exception of other state licensing agencies. If a letter is being requested for the purpose of licensure in another state please see the following:

Each certification letter includes the license number, license issue and expiration date, and current license status.

When the license record reveals that there has been disciplinary action, the request is processed in the Enforcement Program.

To request a certification letter, submit a written request, including the name and license number of the licensee to be certified, along with a check for $10 payable to the Medical Board of California. Mail the request to:

  • Medical Board of California, Licensing Program
    2005 Evergreen Street, Suite 1200
    Sacramento, CA 95815

Please allow 4 to 6 weeks to complete the letter.
