(a) Consultants. Physicians residing in and currently licensed in good standing to practice medicine in another state or country brought into this state for consultation by a physician licensed to practice medicine in this state may practice medicine without first obtaining a Wyoming license for a total of not more than twelve (12) days in any fifty-two (52) week period and, therefore, are exempt from the licensure requirements of these rules and W.S. 33-26-103(a)(iv). Consults of longer duration or greater frequency require written advance approval of a majority of the Board officers. To qualify a consulting physician for the exemption from licensure, the physician licensed to practice medicine in this state shall notify the board, on a form published or approved by the Board, of the consultation in advance of the consulting physician practicing medicine in this state. For purposes of this subsection, the term "brought into this state" means having patient contact and establishing a physician-patient relationship, either by the physician's physical presence with the patient or through telemedicine.
