How many physicians have licenses in more than one state?

PHYSICIANS WITH ACTIVE LICENSES (2012): includes MDs and osteopaths

[The following includes some of my calculations based on the original source material.]

  • 684,991 (78%) held just one active license
  • 140,511 (16%) held licenses in two jurisdictions
  •   52,692 (6%) held licenses in three or more jurisdictions
  • 878,194 total (100%) held active license to practice

There were about 300 physicians, many of whom are probably practicing telemedicine, who had active licenses to practice in 25 or more jurisdictions.
