SB 1030 - This act requires a candidate applying for licensure as a physician to submit to a criminal background check and furnish certain educational and experience documents. This act also allows the Board of Registration for the Healing Arts (the "Board") to require applicants to list all licenses to practice as a physician currently or previously held in another state, territory, or country and to disclose any past or pending investigations, discipline, or sanctions for such licenses. The Board may also obtain a report on the on the applicant from the National Practitioner Data Bank. Furthermore, this act provides that if the Board does not approve or deny an application for licensure as a physician within forty-five days from the date of receipt, the application shall be deemed approved and the candidate shall be considered licensed.

Finally this act specifies that an applicant who has completed an unaccredited postgraduate training in a medical subspecialty for which there isn't a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education ("ACGME") shall satisfy the training requirements for permanent licensure as required by state rules if such training occurred in a teaching hospital accredited by ACGME. The Board shall waive such training requirements for any applicant who has been a licensed physician in good standing in another state for more than three years.

This act is similar to HB 1279 (2023).
