Current Bill Summary

SB 411 - This act removes provisions of law stating that the State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts shall not issue physician or surgeon's licenses or administer the Missouri state board examination to anyone who has failed to achieve a passing score on licensing examinations within three attempts.

The act also removes the requirement that steps one, two, and three of the United States Medical Licensing Examination must be taken within a seven year period with no more than three attempts on any step of the exam.

This act is identical to provisions contained in HCS/SCS/SB 107 (2015) and similar to provisions contained in SS/SB 400 (2015), HCS/SB 458 (2015), and HCS/HBs 671 & 683 (2015).
