State license verification

Applicants must list all states where they do or did hold credentials, including where the applicant applied but didn't receive a credential. The jurisdiction where the applicant is or was credentialed must complete and submit a verification form. The jurisdiction must send the completed form directly to the department.

Personal data questions

Each applicant must answer all personal data questions. If there is a positive answer to any of the questions, the applicant must send an explanation and official documentation (if applicable). With regard to the professional liability claims history question, the applicant must send an explanation of the nature of the case, data and summary of care given, copies of the original complaint, and the settlement or final disposition. If a case is pending, applicant must indicate status.

Additional information/documents required

Process for approving/denying applications

We finish final review for approval after a credentialing specialist verifies that the application is fully complete, and complies with requirements in chapter 18.84 RCW and chapter 246-926 WAC. We complete background checks and make sure applicants have submitted required fees. Credentialing supervisors and lead workers have the authority to approve routine applications. The disciplining authority may conduct further review if the credentialing supervisor can't verify the applicant meets all requirements. We'll formally notify applicants of a denial. Those applicants may request a hearing to appeal the decision.


Radiologist assistants must submit a supervisory plan to the department, which the department must approve before practice can begin. Both the radiologist assistant and a radiologist licensed in this state must sign the plan.

Renewal requirements

Radiologist assistants must renew their license every two years. Credentials expire on the credential holder's birthday and may be renewed within the 90 days before the expiration date.

Continuing education requirements

There are no continuing education requirements.
