The American Academy of Dermatology applauds the Federation of State Medical Board for its efforts in reforming state licensure in a way that will preserve the authority of state medical boards, while also promoting patient safety, high-quality care and increased patient access. The FSMB’s “Interstate Medical Licensure Compact” will allow physicians greater flexibility in practicing across state lines, which is especially vital for the safe and effective provision of telemedicine services.
