Welcome to the website of the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners
The Board will be closed Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day. We will reopen Tuesday, September 8th at 8:00am.
Established in 1894, the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME) protects the health, welfare and safety of Louisiana citizens against the unprofessional, improper, and unauthorized practice of medicine by ensuring that those who practice medicine and other allied health professions under our jurisdiction are qualified and competent to do so. In addition, the Board serves in an advisory capacity to the public and the state with respect to the practice of medicine.
ONLINE RENEWALS: We apologize for the inconvenience. We are still in the development process of the new renewal licensing portal. We hope to have it up and running by the end of the summer. Please continue to check our website for updates. As always, thank you for your patience.
