Why is Harrisburg significant to your medical licensing problem?

If you've come under fire in Pennsylvania and are at risk for losing your physician's license, you may be feeling nervous about the process you're about to enter. In this state, all medical licensing hearings are held in Harrisburg, a metropolitan area in Susquehanna Valley. Whether you live near there or will be traveling from across the state, in either case it would likely be less stressful if you did not go it alone.

As a medical professional, VRP could help save your license

Everyone makes mistakes. Even though medical professionals must often meet a higher standard than most people because they can literally hold people's lives in their hands, they too, make mistakes. The stresses of the job could easily lead to the misuse of drugs or alcohol to cope.

Medical licensing: Doctor's career at risk

Pennsylvania doctors keep a lot of records regarding patient care and treatments for adverse health conditions. If a patient requests a copy of his or her medical records and then claims that what's written is not what actually transpired, it could create a medical licensing problem for the doctor. This is one of the accusations that's been asserted against a doctor in another state, whose license has now been suspended.

Doctors may shun drug addiction treatment over medical licensing

Somewhere in Pennsylvania, there are likely doctors who are battling secret drug addictions. Studies show doctors are definitely not immune to addiction, and, in fact, they develop addictions at the same rate as those outside the medical profession. However, doctors apparently do not seek help to overcome their addictions as often as other people, perhaps because they fear medical licensing problems if they do.
