Assembly Bill
No. 1269

Introduced by Assembly Member Gray

February 22, 2013

An act to amend Section 2168.2 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to medicine.


AB 1269, as introduced, Gray. Medicine: special faculty permit.
The Medical Practice Act provides for the licensure and regulation of physicians and surgeons by the Medical Board of California. Existing law formerly provided for a Division of Medical Quality and a Division of Licensing within the board. Under existing law, any person who meets certain eligibility requirements, including, but not limited to, the requirement that the person is academically eminent, as defined, may apply for a special faculty permit that authorizes the holder to practice medicine, without a physician’s and surgeon’s certificate, within the medical school itself and certain affiliated institutions. Existing law sets forth requirements for the application for a special faculty permit.
This bill would delete outdated references to the Division of Licensing of the board in that provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 2168.2 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

 An application for a special faculty permit shall be made on a form prescribed by the Division of Licensing board and shall include any information that the Division of Licensing board may prescribe to establish an applicant’s eligibility for a permit. This information shall include, but is not limited to, the following:
(a) A statement from the dean of the medical school at which the applicant will be employed describing the applicant’s qualifications and justifying the dean’s determination that the applicant satisfies the requirements of paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 2168.1.
(b) A statement by the dean of the medical school listing every affiliated institution in which the applicant will be providing instruction as part of the medical school’s educational program and justifying any clinical activities at each of the institutions listed by the dean.
