Years of medical school and residence training are required to become a medical professional. Once completed, each specialization has certifications and licenses required to practice. In New Haven, medical professionals have an opportunity to provide their patients with care that helps maintain and improve their lives. Whether it is specializing as a general practitioner, surgeon, or physician’s assistant, all occupations play an important role in the health and safety of the community.
It Could Get Taken Away
In order to provide patients with their needed care, medical professionals must obtain the proper license. A working and up to date knowledge of standards of care, general practices, and ethical conduct are required to maintain a valid license. The Board of Medicine may revoke your license for any violation or improper conduct. Some reasons a license may be revoked are:
Issuing false or misleading reports. Medical practitioners are required to deliver proper documentation if requested by the courts or to be used for administrative purposes. Failure to provide correct documentation is considered misconduct.
Acting in excess of authority. As mentioned above, each specialization requires its own specific certifications and licensure. Acting outside of an authorized area could risk the health and safety of the patient and therefore is a violation that warrants a revocation.
Professional incompetence. Medical professionals are required to continue their education even after completing their medical degree in order to provide the most up-to-date and safe healthcare.
