We are no longer accepting applications at this time.
The application period for 2021 will begin on November 1, 2020.
First-time applicants need to submit fingerprints and pass a criminal background check. The MDA program staff will send all first-time applicants a blank fingerprint card and instructions on how to request the background check after the application is completed. Any applicant with a controlled substance-related felony conviction in the previous 10 year period will not be eligible for licensure.
No one will have access to your private data except those permitted access by law, your written consent, court order, or those department employees whose job duties require access. Names, addresses of study participants, and locations of research or study sites are private data.
