As of May 17, 2022, any suspensions of Iowa law or rule permitting the practice of medicine in the state of Iowa without an Iowa medical license have expired. An Iowa medical license is therefore required to practice medicine in the State of Iowa from this date forward. Practicing medicine in Iowa without an Iowa medical license, even if licensed in another state, may constitute the unlawful practice of medicine in violation of Iowa Code section 147.2.

If you are a doctor relying on the Governor’s previous emergency proclamations to practice medicine in Iowa, and do not currently have an active Iowa medical license, you must immediately cease your practice in Iowa until you are licensed by the Iowa Board of Medicine.
