Title 26 : Professions and Occupations

Chapter 033 : Osteopathy

Subchapter 002 : Board of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons

(Cite as: 26 V.S.A. § 1792)
  • § 1792. Powers; duties

    (a) In addition to its other powers and duties, the Board shall:

    (1) Provide general information to applicants.

    (2) Explain appeal procedures to licensees and applicants and complaint procedures to the public.

    (3) Adopt rules that establish the activities that must be completed by an applicant in order to fulfill the experience requirements of this chapter. The rules shall require that the applicant’s experience be under the supervision of an osteopathic physician licensed under this chapter. Such activities shall be designed to ensure that all applicants acquire experience in critical areas of osteopathic medicine, but shall not limit admission to licensure unless there is good reason to believe that licensure of a particular applicant would be inconsistent with safeguarding the public welfare.

    (b) The Board may adopt rules necessary for the performance of its duties.

    (c) [Repealed.] (Amended 1989, No. 253 (Adj. Sess.), § 6; amended 2015, No. 38, § 17, eff. May 28, 2015.)
