Prior to changing your name at the institution, you must change your name the IDFPR on your medical license.
Bring your legal name change documentation, e.g. copy of marriage certificate, to the GME Office. In order to request a copy of your medical license with your new name, you also must bring a check made out to the IDFPR in the amount of $20. This will be sent to IDFPR by the GME staff, accompanied by your current original temporary license and copies of your name change documentation. It takes at least eight weeks to receive the new copy of your medical license. Your current license will be valid during the time your new license is being processed.
Please fill out the attached Data Change Form and give it to your program coordinator. The change will be made in the E-Value Database System. Your coordinator will then forward it to HR/Benefits so your information may be updated in the overall system. Data Change Form
