As a Pennsylvania medical physician, nurse or practitioner, your professional reputation is likely a key factor to your success. Many medical professionals have built successful and lucrative careers through word-of-mouth recommendations from patients. To the contrary, if the public learns that you have been called to a disciplinary hearing regarding medical licensing and your ability to continue to practice medicine throughout the state, it can have serious long-lasting consequences even if you obtain positive results.
There are many reasons a licensing board might in some way censure, suspend or call into a question a particular person's professional license. Mental health conditions, DUI charges or alleged medical malpractice are a few of the most common reasons. If you are at risk for losing your medical license, you entire future career may be at stake.
In your line of work, a personal problem may negatively impact your professional career. For instance, if you get pulled over by police after a night out with friends and are charged with drunk driving, the situation may wind up ruining your career if your license to practice medicine is suspended or revoked. The good news is that any person called before an administrative board is able to retain legal representation before proceedings begin.
