more information

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

 

Self-inquiry profile
All physicians, regardless of AMA membership status, can request a free self-inquiry profile.

 

Medical licensing board requests
Requests to send a profile to a medical licensing board are free to AMA members and $40 for nonmembers.

 

Identification verification requirement on the new AMA Profiles Hub
The American Medical Association is dedicated to protecting the identity of physicians, especially in an electronic world where identity theft is an ever growing concern. To help protect a physician’s identity and prevent illegal access to his or her profile data, a security measure has been implemented on the Profiles Hub.

Each time a physician requests a self-inquiry profile, the system will present four data statements. The statements are based on information held within the AMA Masterfile. For example, one of the four statements may ask a physician to provide the medical school graduation year. Answers that the physician provides must be correct for all four statements before he or she can complete a self-inquiry order.

Physicians are allowed two opportunities to pass the identity quiz before being locked out of the system. If locked out, they will receive a message instructing them to contact the AMA Unified Service Center (USC) at (800) 665-2882, Monday through Friday from 7 am to 6 pm (central time). The AMA USC will unlock the account and provide any additional assistance as needed.
