It is imperative to keep your medical license up-to-date in order to continue providing patient care. The Washington State Department of Health will mail you a courtesy renewal notice approximately six to eight weeks before your license expires. Please note, however, “Failure to receive a courtesy renewal notice does not relieve or exempt the credential renewal requirement” (WAC 246-12-030(4)).


You are responsible for sending the appropriate fees and any required documentation directly to the Washington State Department of Health. Please do not delay in sending these in and allow sufficient time for your renewal to be processed prior to the expiration date.


To find information about the renewal process or to renew online, visit the Washington State Department of Health’s website.
You may also check the status of your license and renewal on the State’s verification website.
