Description

Certain health care providers; licensure or certification by endorsement. Requires the Board of Health to issue a certification by endorsement to any applicant for certification as an emergency medical services provider who holds a valid, unrestricted licensure or certification as an emergency medical services provider under the laws of another state, the District of Columbia, or a United States possession or territory and, in the opinion of the Board of Health, meets the qualifications necessary for certification as an emergency medical services provider in the Commonwealth. The bill also requires the Board of Medicine to issue a license or certificate by endorsement to an applicant who holds a valid, unrestricted license or certificate under the laws of another state, the District of Columbia, or a United States territory or possession with which the Commonwealth has not established a reciprocal relationship upon endorsement by the appropriate board or other appropriate authority of such other states, the District of Columbia, or United States territory or possession and a determination by the Board of Medicine that the applicant's credentials are satisfactory to the Board of Medicine and the examinations and passing grades required by such other board or authority are fully equal to those required by the Board of Medicine.
