Medical licensing requirements re opioid prescriptions

If you're a licensed physician, surgeon, nurse midwife or practitioner in Pennsylvania, you obviously already successfully completed a certain amount of education according to the accepted standards and requirements in your particular field of study. However, even after you have secured gainful income as a licensed medical professional, there may be times when you wish to apply for additional privileges or permissions that allow you to perform a broader scope of duties on the job. For instance, you may want to seek medical licensing permission to write opioid prescriptions.

There may be some doctors in Pennsylvania currently facing serious issues regarding their licenses to practice medicine.

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.

Medical licensing: Doctor's career at risk

Pennsylvania doctors keep a lot of records regarding patient care and treatments for adverse health conditions.

Doctors may shun drug addiction treatment over medical licensing

Somewhere in Pennsylvania, there are likely doctors who are battling secret drug addictions.

Pain management doctor facing medical licensing problem

Doctors in Pennsylvania, like many others throughout the nation, often carry licenses to practice medicine in multiple states.

There are various reasons a doctor's medical licensing may be called into question. For one woman, a problem stemmed from reported complaints against her.

Doctor in another state is seeking medical license defense
