A myriad of licensed health care practitioners work together at health care facilities and in independent medical practices. What common educational requirements and health care practitioner licensure provisions govern these various professions to obtain a credential from the state?
How does the state have the legal authority under health care law to dictate who does what? Explore and justify the state regulation that go beyond mere turf wars between overlapping and similar health care professions.
Once a license is obtained by the individual, what ongoing requirements and powers does the state licensure agency have over the licensed professional on a continuing, on-going basis?
At the other end of the licensure process, what mechanisms exist to suspend or to revoke a professional credential? While it is commonly known how someone gets to be a health care professional, such as a nurse, less commonly recognized is the state’s authority over the professional license of the nurse, which can be taken away forever with due process.
Why Should You Attend:

Know the basics of professional education and licensure. And while everyone wants to know, for example, how to become doctor, very few understand the state licensure aspect – and especially the mechanisms the state imposes on how to take a doctor’s license away.
