The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) has announced there will soon be changes in the license renewal date for credentialed DO physicians. Per 2017 Wisconsin Act 329, the renew-by date for DOs will be aligned with the renew-by date for MDs, meaning DOs must renew their Wisconsin credential by October 31 of odd years.
The next renewal date for DOs will be October 31, 2019. Since the renew-by date is now sooner than the normal two-year biennium, DSPS will be charging a one-time prorated renewal fee of $118 instead of the normal $141.
DSPS will be communicating details of this change with DO credential holders via email in the near future.
