Joining the Children's National Medical Staff

- D.C. Medical License
- Maryland Medical License
- Virginia Medical License
- West Virginia Medical License
- D.C. Psychology License
- Maryland Psychology License (if you will practice in Maryland)
- Virginia Psychology License (if you will practice in Virginia)
- Federal DEA Registration
- D.C. Controlled Substances Registration
- Maryland Controlled Substances Registration
