Wis. Admin. Code Medical Examining Board § Med 1.02 - Applications and credentials

Current through March 28, 2022

Every person applying for regular license to practice medicine and surgery shall make application therefor on forms provided for this purpose by the board and shall submit to the board the following:

(1) A completed and verified application form.
(2) Verified documentary evidence of graduation from a medical or osteopathic school approved by the board. The board recognizes as approved those medical or osteopathic schools accredited at the time of the applicant's graduation therefrom by the American Osteopathic Association, or the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, or their successors. If an applicant is not a graduate of a medical school approved by the board, but is a graduate of a medical school recognized and listed as such by the World Directory of Medical Schools or its predecessor the International Medical Education Directory, such applicant shall submit verified documentary evidence of graduation from such school and also verified documentary evidence of having passed the examinations required by the Educational Council for Foreign Medical Graduates or successors, and shall also present for the board's inspection the originals thereof, and if such medical school requires either social service or internship or both of its graduates, and if the applicant has not completed either such required social service or internship or both, such applicant shall also submit verified documentary evidence of having completed a 12 month supervised clinical training program under the direction of a medical school approved by the board.
(3)
(a) Verification of satisfactory completion by the applicant of 24 months of postgraduate training in one or more programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, or a successor organization; or documentary evidence that the applicant is currently enrolled in a postgraduate training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, or a successor organization and has received credit for 12 consecutive months of postgraduate training in that program and an unrestricted endorsement from the postgraduate training director that the applicant is expected to complete at least 24 months of postgraduate training.
(b) If an applicant is a graduate of a foreign allopathic or osteopathic medical school, then the applicant must provide a verified certificate showing satisfactory completion of 24 months of postgraduate training in one or more programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, or a successor organization; or documentary evidence that the applicant is currently enrolled in a postgraduate training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, or a successor organization and has received credit for 12 consecutive months of postgraduate training in that program and an unrestricted endorsement from the postgraduate training director that the applicant is expected to complete at least 24 months of postgraduate training.
(c) If the applicant possesses a medical license issued by another jurisdiction and has not completed 24 months of postgraduate training approved by the board and is not currently enrolled in a postgraduate training program but the applicant has other professional experience which the applicant believes has given that applicant the education and training substantially equivalent to 24 months of postgraduate training, then the applicant may submit the documented education and training demonstrating substantially equivalent education and training. The board will review the documented education and training and may make further inquiry, including a personal interview of the applicant, as the board deems necessary to determine whether substantial equivalence in fact exists. The burden of proof of such equivalence shall lie upon the applicant. If the board finds that the documented education and training is substantially equivalent to the required training and experience the board may grant a waiver of the requirements under par. (a) or (b).
(cm) An applicant may apply to the board for waiver of the requirements of par. (a) or (b) on grounds of prolonged illness or disability or other similar hardship, and each case will be considered individually on its merits by the board.
(d) The board approves of the training programs accredited by the following organizations: the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Osteopathic Association, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, and the National Joint Committee on Approval of Pre-Registration of Physician Training Programs of Canada, or their successor organizations.
(4) An unmounted photograph, approximately 8 by 12 cm., of the applicant taken not more than 60 days prior to the date of application and bearing on the reverse side the statement of a notary public that such photograph is a true likeness of the applicant.
(5) A verified statement that the applicant is familiar with the state health laws and the rules of the department of health services as related to communicable diseases.
(6) The required fees made payable to the Wisconsin department of safety and professional services.
