175.006 Physician Licensure by Individual State Medical Boards

175.006

Physician Licensure by Individual State Medical Boards: Individual state medical boards should judge the competency and qualifications of physicians. The Texas Medical Association will monitor and respond to changes in federal law which would supersede state physician licensure law. TMA opposes proposals for post-licensure assessment as a condition for physician participation in the Medicare program. Further, TMA opposes the use of board certification as a requirement for reimbursement or licensure (CME, pp 98-99, I-93; amended CME Rep. 1-A-07; reaffirmed CME Rep. 6-A-17).
