MEB-013: Maintenance of Licensure

 
Maintenance of Licensure: The Wisconsin Medical Society opposes the public reporting of individual physician performance data for maintenance of licensure and maintenance of certification; and advocates that the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board should accept that physicians enrolled and who meet requirements of Maintenance of Certification or Osteopathic Continuous Certification will also simultaneously meet the requirements of Maintenance of Licensure. The Society advocates that reciprocity in maintenance of licensure between states should be championed; and advocates that flexibility must be incorporated into the maintenance of licensure and maintenance of certification process in order to accommodate all the roles and professional responsibilities (clinical care, research, administration, education, etc.) that physicians have; and advocates that maintenance of licensure and maintenance of certification must be about improvement, rather than being punitive; and works to be included and involved in discussions about changes in maintenance of licensure and maintenance of certification requirements so that the Society can help the process in an optimal manner.
