Qualifications for License by Endorsement

(1) The Oregon Medical Board may issue a license by endorsement to a physician who:

(a) Meets the requirements for licensure as stated in OAR 847-020-0120, 847-020-0130, 847-020-0170, and 847-023-005;

(b) Has not had privileges at a hospital, clinic, or surgical center denied, reduced, restricted, suspended, revoked, terminated and has not been subject to staff disciplinary action or non-renewal of an employment contract for reasons in the Board’s judgment related to medical practice or unprofessional conduct, or been requested to voluntarily resign or had privileges suspended while under investigation;

(c) Is eligible for primary source verification of medical education, post-graduate training and examination scores through the state in which the applicant was originally licensed. The Board may use current certification by the American Board of Medical Specialties or the American Osteopathic Association’s Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists as a proxy for verification of medical education, post-graduate training and examination scores from the initial state of licensure;

(d) Is in good standing, with no restrictions or limitations upon, actions taken against, or investigation or disciplinary action pending against his/her license in any state, district, territory, or jurisdiction where applicant is or has been licensed;

(e) Has no significant malpractice claim patterns or patient care issues as determined by the Board;

(f) Has one (1) year of current, active, unrestricted, unlimited clinical practice of medicine or surgery, or osteopathic medicine and surgery in their medical specialty, if any, as a licensee of a state, district, territory, or jurisdiction in the year preceding the physician’s submission to the Board of an application to practice in Oregon, or if retired must have been retired for no more than one (1) calendar year preceding the physician’s submission to the Board of an application to practice in Oregon. Clinical patient practice will be documented by verification of staff privileges, or non-consulting medical employment. A year of accredited clinical fellowship in the applicant’s medical specialty as a licensee of a state, district, territory or jurisdiction qualifies as a year of clinical practice.

(2) A physician is not eligible for licensure by endorsement if the Board finds that the applicant has engaged in conduct prohibited by ORS 677.190.

(3) An applicant ineligible for licensure by endorsement may make a full and complete application per the requirements of OAR 847-020, or 847-023.
