The practice of Medicine was first regulated in Maryland by an Act
of Assembly of 1888, which required that the State Board of Health
license all physicians. In 1892 the General Assembly created two
Boards of Medical Examiners to carry on this function, one to repre-
sent the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty and the other the State
Homeopathic Society. The Legislature of 1957 abolished the Home-
opathic Board and the practice of medicine in Maryland is now regu-
lated by one Board, composed of eight members elected from and by
the members of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty (State Medical
Society). Two members are elected each year to serve for four-year
terms. All members must be in active practice in the State (Code 1957,
Art. 43, sec. 118).

"The Board tests and licenses physicians for the legal practice of
medicine in this State and for certain causes may revoke the license
of any physician. Candidates for licenses must be graduates of medical
schools approved by the American Medical Association and the Asso-
ciation of American Medical Colleges, or of foreign medical schools
that offer an equivalent education. All graduates of foreign medical
schools who apply after January 1, 1959, must pass the examination
given by the Educational Council for Foreign Medical Graduates. The
Board determines qualifications for practice by (1) its own written
examination; or (2) endorsement of licenses obtained in a reciprocat-
ing state; or (3) endorsement of a certificate of the National Board
of Medical Examiners. Examinations are held in June and December
of each year.

The State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, established in
1894, is composed of five members appointed by the Governor for five-
year terms. Each member must be a licensed veterinarian engaged in
active practice. The Board passes upon the qualifications of candidates
for licenses to practice veterinary medicine in the State and examines
such persons. It may conduct hearings and pass upon complaints of
illegal or unethical practices and may institute proceedings in the
courts against those engaged in illegal practice (Code 1957, Art. 43,
sees. 160-57).
