The practice of Medicine was first regulated in Maryland by Chap-
ter 429, Acts of 1888, which required that the State Board of Health
license all physicians. By Chapter 296, Acts of 1892, the General
Assembly created two Boards of Medical Examiners to carry on this
function, one to represent the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty and
the other the State Homeopathic Society. The Legislature of 1957
abolished the Homeopathic Board and the practice of medicine in
Maryland is now regulated 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, 1971 Repl. Vol., Art. 43, sees. 119-149).
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 Associ-
ation 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) the FLEX (Federal
Licensing Examination); or (2) endorsement of licenses obtained in a
reciprocating state; or (3) endorsement of a certificate of the National
Board of Medical Examiners. FLEX examinations are held in June
and December of each year.
Effective June 1, 1967, the Board of Medical Examiners began
licensing certain Osteopaths on the basis of endorsement, depending
upon their qualifications (Code 1957, 1971 Repl. Vol., Art. 43, sec.
