Physician Access of Profiles

AMA Credentialing Services grants physicians the option to request profile delivery to a medical licensing board and/or to access a self-inquiry profile.

Requests to send a profile to a licensing board

Regardless of AMA membership status, physicians may request that a profile (view a sample) be sent to a medical licensing board. A $40 processing fee is applied to all requests.

Free requests for a self-inquiry profile

Regardless of AMA membership status, physicians may request a free self-inquiry profile (view a sample). Such a check of one’s profile can help a physician ensure that her/his data is accurately reported on a profile prior to credentialing or reappointment. A self-inquiry profile also comes in handy when locating primary-source verified data that a physician needs to include on an application for credentialing, privileging, and/or licensure.

Protecting your privacy. Ensuring security.

As a privacy and security measure, AMA requires all physicians who request a self-inquiry profile to correctly answer a series of security questions based on information held within the AMA Physician Professional Data (formerly known as Masterfile). Physicians are allowed two opportunities to answer all four questions correctly before being locked out of the system. If locked out, please contact the AMA Unified Service Center (USC) at (800) 665-2882, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm (central time). Upon successful completion of the security process, physicians will need to read and accept the AMA Profiles Hub licensing agreement.

Where to submit your requests

Requests to send a profile to a licensing board or to access a free self-inquiry profile can be made through our online platform AMA Profiles Hub.
