Those wishing to practice medicine in the state of Michigan need to obtain a limited, temporary, special volunteer, or full medical license.
The Michigan Board of Medicine subjects physicians who prescribe medicine over the Internet to monetary fines, license suspension, or license revocation. Additionally, the Board considers prescriptions issued pursuant to an Internet questionnaire, without an existing physician-patient relationship or a physical examination, to be invalid and those prescribing physicians are engaging in substandard medical 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.
