Those wishing to practice medicine in the state of Tennessee may obtain a full medical license or a special telemedicine license.
The Tennessee State Medical Board issued a position statement on the topic of prescribing medication to a patient over the Internet. The State Board requires that physical examination be conducted and the patient’s medical history be retried.
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.
