Wisconsin Licensure Process
Once you have made the decision to join Aurora Health Care, you will have a dedicated Specialist ready to help you through the process to ensure a smooth transition between signing and start date. The Specialist will assist you throughout the licensure and credentialing process and will be there to help you through your first years so that you can build and maintain a solid, patient centered practice.
It is essential that all practicing physicians be licensed by the State of Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing.
The licensure process takes approximately 90-120 days so it's a good idea to start early. You can request a license application packet by calling the State of Wisconsin at 608-266-2812.
It may take up to three weeks for the state to mail the packet to a potential licensee. You may reduce the time by taking advantage of the state's website which contains all the required forms and an excellent explanation of the process. In addition, Wisconsin requires a test on its laws that you must pass as part of your application process.
