State Medical Licensing Board

The regulation of physicians in Illinois can be traced back to the first Medical Practice Act of

Illinois enacted in 1877. Medical practitioners were placed under the jurisdiction of the

Department upon its creation in 1917. The Board is made up of seven physicians appointed by

the Governor, consisting of five licensed to practice medicine in all of its branches and

possessing the degree of Doctor of Medicine, one licensed to practice medicine in all of its

branches possessing the degree of Doctor of Osteopathy, and one possessing the degree of

Doctor of Chiropractic. The Board advises the Department and the Secretary on the

qualifications of applicants for licensure as physicians in Illinois. To search for a doctor by name
