FSMB President and CEO, Humayun Chaudhry, DO, sits down with Tara Koslov, JD, Acting Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to discuss the impact the U.S. Supreme Court decision in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission is having on state medical boards.
I appreciate all that has been done on the Compact Licensure program. In the state of IL trying to get a medical license issued is a very challenging process. The compact program is the only way to get a license issued in a timely fashion. Having worked in medical staff services and credentialing for 30 years now, it is a definite step in the right direction, especially with WI and IL health system mergers in the headlines.
