Do statements in a license renewal count as evidence against you?

As a medical professional, keeping your professional license in good standing is a daily effort, evidenced by the quality of care that you provide to your patients. However, it is also important to consider the license renewal application process.


If you are a nurse, doctor, dentist, pharmacist or other healthcare worker and have been arrested for driving under the influence or any other criminal charges, the arrest could jeopardize your healthcare license.

Are doctors held to ethical standards even when off duty?

A recent consent agreement executed by a neighboring state’s medical board has resulted in the suspension of a family medicine doctor’s license. The agreement was based, in part, on the doctor’s admission that he had entered into sexual relations with a female patient.

What steps can you take to ensure your professional standing?

It can be easy to forget that licensed professionals are subject to the same job stressors and performance inhibitors as everyone else. Problems at home may be taking a toll in the office. Addictions to medications, drug abuse, or mental health matters might be posing a danger to a professional and/or his or her patients.
