Expedited Temporary License for Physician Assistants 

 IMPORTANT NOTE: The Wyoming Board of Medicine does not issue "locum tenens" or other short-term licenses. Any temporary license issued by the Board is with the expectation that the applicant will complete the full licensure process including, if necessary, a licensure interview with the Board. Failure to complete the licensing process after a temporary license has been issued may result in denial of the application for licensure, which is reportable to the NPDB.

The following information outlines the criteria an applicant must meet to be eligible for an expedited temporary license:

Upon receipt of the application form, fee, affidavit, proof of citizenship and application form for supervising physician, and the Board's receipt of required national data base reports, a temporary license may be granted by the Board staff pending review of the application by the Board if the applicant meets ALL of the following criteria:
