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 or medical specialty see the Physician Select Page at the internet site

for the American Medical Association.
