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.
The Society advocates that:
- Reciprocity in maintenance of licensure between states should be championed.
- Flexibility must be incorporated into the maintenance of licensure and maintenance of certification process in order to accommodate all of the roles and professional responsibilities (clinical care, research, administration, education, etc.) physicians have.
- Maintenance of licensure and maintenance of certification must be about improvement rather than being punitive.
- The Society should 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. (HOD, 0418)
