Michigan Task Force on Foreign Trained Medical Professional Licensing

As mandated by Public Act 166 of 2022, representatives from state government, higher education, hospitals, and other professional associations were invited to meet with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to identify obstacles that prevent Foreign Trained Medical Professionals (FTMPs) from practicing in Michigan and create recommendations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the licensing process.

The final report and recommendations create a roadmap for Michigan to address the health care occupation gap while ensuring that highly qualified individuals have the ability to practice in Michigan at a level that is commensurate to their education and training.
