    Physician credentialling is when a physician wants to becomef an insurance company's "in-network prodvider". It takes about 6 months or so and a lot of paperwork is involved.

    There is also the credentialing process physicians have to go thru to become on-staff at a hospital. This also, can take a very lengthy time. There is much paperwork and tons of documentation required for any credentialting - both insurance carriers and hospital privileges.
