Chapter 360-9 TEACHER'S LICENSES
|(1)||The Board may issue, in its discretion, without examination, a teacher's license to physicians licensed and in good standing in other states and foreign countries for the sole purpose of teaching or demonstrating medicine in a Board approved medical college or its affiliated clinic in this State. The Board will consider each request for a teacher's license on a case-by-case basis.|
|(2)||Applicants for a teacher's license must complete an application form approved by the Board. Such application must be submitted and approved by the Board, including all required documentation, signatures, seals and payment of the appropriate fees before an applicant can be approved for a teacher's license. No temporary teacher's license shall be issued.|
|(3)||To be eligible for a teacher's license, an applicant must submit evidence on a form approved by the Board, signed by the dean of the Board approved medical school, which certifies that the applicant is considered a distinguished medical scholar or can make a significant contribution to the school's teaching program. The Board approved school shall state the expected duration of the applicant's appointment, and shall notify the Board of the termination of the appointment.|
|(4)||The applicant must show proof of being currently licensed and in good standing in another state or foreign country.|
|(1)||An applicant who is approved for a teacher's license may only teach or demonstrate medicine in a Board approved medical college of its affiliated clinic. For purposes of this Rule, a Board approved medical college shall be one approved by the Liaison Committee of Medical Education (L.C.M.E.). Under no circumstances shall such a license holder be authorized to open an office for the practice of medicine. The teacher's license shall be valid only so long as the license holder currently holds an appointment as a faculty member at such an approved medical college. The expiration date of the teacher's license shall be determined based upon the expected duration of the appointment and shall be renewable only at the discretion of the Board. The license shall automatically expire upon termination of the appointment if such date occurs earlier than that listed on the license. In any event, such license shall expire two years from the date of issuance. Renewal of the license after two years shall be authorized only if the Board determines that such renewal is in the best interest of the public. The holder of a teacher's license shall not be authorized to possess a DEA registration for the prescribing, dispensing, etc. of controlled substances.|
|(2)||In no event shall a Teacher's License be renewed more than once.|
In any case where the holder of a teacher's license engages in teaching or demonstrating medicine in a Board approved medical college or its affiliated clinic which involves direct patient contact, disclosure shall be made to such patient that the procedure is being performed by a person who holds a teacher's license who is not otherwise licensed to practice medicine in the State of Georgia.
The holder of a teacher's license shall be subject to all disciplinary provisions of O.C.G.A. § 43-34-37, O.C.G.A. § 43-1-19 and Board Rule 360-2-.09 and shall at all times be expected to comply with the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing medical practice in this State.
