The Texas Medical Board (TMB) will automatically extend until Aug. 31, 2020, all state medical licenses that have expired or will expire between Feb. 28, 2020, and May 31, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency said. Any late fees will be waived, TMB said. 

In addition, the due date of newly licensed physicians and physician assistants whose initial registrations are due in March, April, May, or June of 2020 will be extended to Aug. 31, 2020, TMB said. 

“For ALL license and permit holders regulated by the TMB, the agency will take into account extenuating circumstances surrounding the completion of license/permit renewal requirements such as renewal deadlines and completion of continuing education hours,” TMB added in a statement. 

To view, save, or print a copy of your active license with the updated expiration date, log into your MyTMB account on the TMB website, which also has information on license fees, and CME requirements for all license types.
