Medical relicensing may get tougher

The Federation of State Medical Boards is considering a policy in which doctors would have to jump through more hoops for license renewal:

Under the draft policy, relicensure would become more comprehensive and require that physicians demonstrate continuing skills and knowledge in their area of practice. As proposed, the maintenance of licensure process would closely mirror the requirements that the American Board of Medical Specialties has in place for maintenance of certification.

But at this point it’s only a proposal. If adopted by FSMB it would be up to individual states to enact it, or some modification.
