Online Renewal

Notice for Active Duty Military Physicians

The board recently implemented a rule that exempts a physician who was on active duty in the U.S. armed forces, reserves or national guard during their renewal period from having to pay the renewal fee.  “Active duty” means full-time training or active service in the U.S. armed forces, reserves or national guard.   If you qualify for this type of renewal, please contact Judy Hojati, Renewal Coordinator at 515-242-3248 or judy.hojati@iowa.gov to request a paper renewal application.
