History of the Board

The State Board of Medical Registration and Examination of Indiana was established in 1897.  The first licenses were for physicians.  The Board began issuing osteopathic licenses in 1901.  In 1945, the name changed to the Board of Medical Registration and Examination of Indiana.  Teaching and Postgraduate Training (now Residency & Non-ECFMG or fellowship) permits were first issued in 1965.  In 1975, the name changed again to the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana and took its present composition pursuant to IC 25-22.5.   Until 1981, the Board oversaw the chiropractic profession and until 1993, the Board oversaw the podiatry profession.

The Board is comprised of seven members, all appointed by the Governor.  Five are physicians; one is an osteopathic physician; and, one is a consumer member.  Each appointed member may serve on the Board for an unlimited number of four year terms.
