Emergency Practice Permit

Full Text

During an event for which the Governor of the State of Georgia has issued an executive order declaring a disaster or a state of emergency, the Board may waive some of the licensure requirements in order to permit the provision of emergency health services to the public. Before practicing medicine in Georgia under this provision, the applicant must receive the Board's approval of the following: (a) an application for this emergency practice permit; (b) proof of current and unrestricted licensure in another state; (c) a current National Practitioner's Data Bank ("NPDB") Report and (d) a copy of a valid government issued photo id. All permits issued under this provision shall be valid for 90 days or until the statement of emergency or disaster has been lifted by the Governor of the State of Georgia, whichever comes first.
