Reinstatement of inactive license (MD/DO)

Important Information

Dear Doctor:

Thank you for your interest in reinstating your license to practice medicine in Alabama. Below is a link to download the reinstatement packet with instructions to help you complete this process. Please be advised that our reinstatement fees are set by the Code of Alabama 1975, Section 34-24-337 and are $250.00 plus past due renewal fees not to exceed a total of $850.00. Therefore, if your license expired prior to December 31, 2019, your reinstatement fee will be $850.00. If your license expired on December 31, 2019, your reinstatement fee will be $550.00 (until the end of this calendar year).

Alabama law also allows for a sixty (60) day time period in which the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners may investigate pending reinstatement applications. If the Board’s investigation result in a probable cause finding that grounds to deny the application for reinstatement exist, a Notice of Intent to Contest Reinstatement may be filed by the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners. If the Board finds no probable cause, your application for reinstatement will be processed and you will be notified that your license is reinstated.

You are to submit with your reinstatement application proof of 25 AMA PRA Category 1 continuing medical education credits acquired in the preceding twelve (12) months as well as the completed criminal background form and two fingerprint cards. Fingerprint cards are available and can be completed by most local law enforcement agencies. There is a $65.00 processing fee associated with the criminal background check as indicated on the application.

Please note that all incomplete reinstatement applications expire six (6) months from the date we receive the application in our office. If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Nicole Chapman at nchapman at or 334-242-4153.
