Alternatives to medical license revocation

If you are facing a potential revocation of your medical license, having an attorney by your side may help sway the board to choose an alternative action.

Read on to learn more about disciplinary measures that may be imposed as an alternative if the board finds that your license or certificate could be refused, suspended or revoked.

There are a number of reasons why the board may issue a license refusal or revocation. A few examples may include if:

  • You violated a board regulation
  • Your illness, drunkenness, narcotics or mental/physical condition makes you unable to practice with reasonable skill and safety precautions
  • You have been misleading, deceptive, untrue or fraudulent in the practice of osteopathic medicine and surgery
  • You knowingly aided, assisted or advised an unlicensed person to practice osteopathic medicine and surgery

Alternative measures that may be taken instead of license revocation may include:

  • Restoring or reissuing a license to practice osteopathic medicine and surgery or licensure as a physician assistant
  • Requiring you to consult with a physician to receive care, counseling or treatment
  • Assigning you probation
  • Suspending, limiting, or otherwise restricting the license or certificate
  • Administering a public or private reprimand

These are just a few of the examples of alternatives that may be reached.

If you are facing a professional licensing issue because of a criminal matter, consult with an attorney who understands the details of both medical licensing and criminal defense.

A lawyer with this type of law background can help explain certain procedures and rights that are exclusive to medical or nursing professionals so that you know how best to address issues that may affect your future licensing and employment.
