SMBO’s Changes to Licensure Application Fees and Training Certificates Took Effect Sept. 29

Two changes from the State Medical Board of Ohio (SMBO) that impact physician applicants and those with training certification took effect September 29.

The first change is a reduction in the physician licensure application fee for MDs, DOs, and DPMs, from $335 to $305. The budget bill, HB 479, included a provision on making the price cut.

The other change is that training certificates are valid for three years instead of one. Training certificates that have been issued since September 29 will be valid until 2020; those issued before September 29 expire in 2018. Questions about this change can be emailed to
