Physician Credentialing Process

Careers section image

VA eases the credentialing process.

In the private sector, Locum Tenens professionals must work through the licensing and/or credentialing process with their agency of choice every time they switch states and/or assignments.

At VA, only one active, unrestricted state license is required to practice in every VA facility across all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories. Plus, our Locum Tenens professionals go through the credentialing process just once. With each new assignment thereafter, your credentials will be accepted, and the privileging process will be streamlined.

VA's nationwide online credentialing system (VetPro) has been designed to be intuitive and simplify the credentialing process. In a recent national commercial survey of more than 1,200 physicians, 75 percent of respondents with Government practice experience said getting credentialed at VA eased the process for taking subsequent VA positions.

Read our VetPro Guide for an inside look at the types of information required to complete VA's credentialing process.
