Each Board of Medical Examiners which revokes or suspends (or otherwise
restricts) a physician’s license or censures, reprimands, or places on probation
a physician, for reasons relating to the physician’s professional competence or
professional conduct, or to which a physician’s license is surrendered, shall
report, the name of the physician involved, a description of the acts or
omissions or other reasons (if known) for the revocation, suspension, or
surrender of license, and such other information respecting the circumstances
of the action or surrender as the Secretary deems appropriate.
If, after notice of noncompliance and providing opportunity to correct
noncompliance, the Secretary determines that a Board of Medical Examiners
has failed to report information in accordance with the Act, the Secretary shall
designate another qualified entity for the reporting of the required information.
