Medical board eliminates plastic physician licenses

May 03, 2022

The Medical Board of California recently phased out plastic medical license cards. In lieu of the old plastic cards, physicians can now use the medical board’s new "Print Your Own" Wallet License Generator that allows individuals with current licenses to generate a digital license and print it on any printer or house the card electronically.

In order to generate a license, the medical board first requires identity verification through its license verification app, IDEAL. These printable wallet licenses also include a QR code interested parties can use to view the Department of Consumer Affairs licensee lookup with real-time license status information.

To generate your license, visit mbc.ca.gov/WalletCard.
