Dr. Humayun Chaudhry
President and CEO,
Federation of State Medical Boards
Chaudhry is responsible for governing the national federation that represents the country’s 70 medical and osteopathic licensing boards and co-owns the United States Medical Licensing Examination. He has been working to advance a secure pathway for physicians licensed in one state to practice across state lines, such as through the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, which took effect in 2017 and has issued thousands of licenses since then. In his job, Chaudhry seeks to balance competing issues, such as the need to facilitate the greater use of telemedicine as a pandemic response with the need to prevent any abuse and fraud resulting from it. Before taking over the federation in 2009, he was commissioner of health services for Suffolk County, New York.
