The Commission refers any cases coming to its attention to the ap-
propriate local county society or committee of the Medical and Chirurg-
ical Faculty of the State of Maryland for investigation and report. The
report must be acted upon within ninety days unless there is a time ex-
tension granted by the Commission. The report must contain such
recommendations as the investigation reveals might be necessary for
adequate disciplinary procedures. The recommendations will then be
considered by the Commission.

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 As-
sembly created two Boards of Medical Examiners to carry on this func-
tion, one to represent the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty and the
other the State Homeopathic Society. The Legislature of 1957 abol-
ished 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 de-
termines qualifications for practice by (1) the FLEX (Federal Licens-
ing 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 licens-
ing certain Osteopaths on the basis of endorsement, depending upon
their qualifications (Code 1957, 1971 Repl. Vol., Art. 43, sec. 124(a2) ).
