If you are interested in applying for a license from the state regulatory agency, the Maryland Physician Board, you may download a license application here. After you have your license, and have obtained a position, you must file a Delegation Agreement before beginning work. This agreement attests to the partnership between you and the supervising physician and may outline any "special duties or procedures" you may be asked to perform. After downloading a Delegation Agreement, here, you and your supervising physician should fill out the appropriate sections and return it as directed. Note that there is a deadline each month for filing your agreement which will allow it to be reviewed that month. See our Calendar for a list of deadlines.
