Clearinghouse Partners with FSMB for Secure Electronic Delivery of Physician Transcripts
Physicians and physician assistants now have a timelier, easier, and more secure way to deliver transcripts directly to the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB). The Clearinghouse will provide instant and secure delivery of transcripts in an electronic format directly to FSMB, substantially enhancing delivery times and eliminating the risk of mailed transcripts being lost or delayed.
Any medical school or college of health sciences that offers Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, or Physician Assistant degrees, and designates the National Student Clearinghouse as their transcript services provider, can have this new service immediately available to them. Once a transcript order is placed, the electronic transcript is sent directly to FSMB and incorporated into the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS) at no additional cost to the requesting physician or physician assistant.
“Streamlining administrative and licensing processes for physicians and physician assistants is an important part of our mission,” said Mike Dugan, Chief Information Officer and Senior Vice President of FSMB. “This partnership is a key milestone for FSMB. We see this as just the first step and look forward to additional future enhancements for our user community.”
The FSMB partnership represents a continued commitment by the Clearinghouse to broaden the number of data exchange work streams available to the higher education community. In addition to FSMB, the Clearinghouse delivers transcripts electronically to the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) and the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC).
