Existing law, the Medical Practice Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of physicians and surgeons by the Medical Board of California. Existing law requires that a physician and surgeon's certificate be suspended automatically when the holder of the certificate is incarcerated after a felony conviction. This bill would require that a physician and surgeon's certificate be automatically placed on inactive status during any period of incarceration after a misdemeanor conviction. The bill would require the reason for this type of inactive status to be disclosed, as specified. The bill would require a certificate placed on inactive status to be returned by the board to its prior or appropriate status after receiving notice that the physician and surgeon is no longer incarcerated, as specified, and would require the board to adopt regulations in this regard.
