This week, Mark and Margaret speak with Dr. Humayun Chaudhry, President and CEO of the Federation of State Medical Boards. Dr. Chaudhry has been working to advance the proposed Interstate Compact, a new option for medical licensing that would speed up the process of issuing licenses for physicians who wish to practice in multiple states. The new interstate compact system is expected to facilitate licensure portability and telemedicine while widening access to health care by physicians, particularly in underserved areas of the nation.
