Those wishing to practice medicine in the state of Connecticut need to obtain a temporary or full medical license.
The Connecticut Medical Examining Board prohibits physicians who have not established a prior physician-patient relationship with an individual from issuing medical prescriptions to that individual on the basis of an online questionnaire. This is considered a breach of a physician’s standard of care.
The Center for Telehealth & e-Health law is committed to keeping the telehealth community informed on emerging legal and regulatory telehealth issues. In efforts to accomplish this goal, CTeL has made available each state’s physician licensure statutes. However, for those interested in a more in-depth analysis of these statutes, CTeL offers its members access to a annotated statutory directory, complete with executive summaries.
