A physician may request cancellation of his or her Texas medical license at any time.
Once a license is cancelled, the physician will no longer be able to practice medicine in the state of Texas in any capacity. In order to practice medicine again in Texas following cancellation, a physician must file an application for relicensure and meet all requirements for licensure in effect at that time (including post graduate training requirements, exam attempt limits, etc.).
To request cancellation of a license, complete and return the cancellation request form (link below) to the Board for approval before the expiration date of the current registration permit. Refunds of registration fees already paid cannot be made.
Notification will be sent if the physician does not qualify for cancellation due to a pending investigation or another reason.
If you have any questions, please contact the Registration Department at Registrations@tmb.state.tx.us .
