physicians. By Chapter 296, Acts of 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 Legis-
lature of 1957 abolished the Homeopathic Board
and the practice of medicine in Maryland is now
regulated by one Board, composed of ten mem-
bers. Eight physician members are elected from
and by the members of the Medical and Chirur-
gical Faculty (State Medical Society). Two of
these members are elected each year to serve four-
year terms. All members must be in active prac-
tice in the State. The two remaining members are
consumers who cannot have been trained in medi-
cine or have financial interests in a related field.
Consumer members are appointed by the Gover-
nor on the recommendation of the Secretary of
the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
with the advice and consent of the Senate (Code
1957, Art. 43, secs. 119-149).

The Board tests and licenses physicians for the
practice of medicine in the 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 Medi-
cal Association and the Association of American
Medical Colleges or of foreign medical schools
that offer an equivalent education. All graduates
of foreign medical schools who apply must pass
the examination given by the Educational Council
for Foreign Medical Graduates. The Board deter-
mines qualifications for practice by the FLEX ex-
amination (Federal Licensing Examination), en-
dorsement of licenses obtained in a reciprocating
state, or endorsement of a certificate of the Na-
tional Board of Medical Examiners. FLEX exam-
inations are held in June and December of each

Since 1967 the Board of Medical Examiners
has licensed certain osteopaths on the basis of en-
dorsement, depending upon their qualifications
(Code 1957, Art. 43, sec. 124(a2)).

This Board was created by Chapter 172, Acts
of 1904, as amended by Chapter 122, Acts of
1973. Three members must be licensed practical
nurses and six must be registered nurses, all of
whom are appointed by the Governor upon the
recommendation of the Secretary of Health and
Mental Hygiene for three-year terms. As vacan-
cies occur the Maryland Nurses Association and
the Maryland Licensed Practical Nurses Associa-
tion, as the case may be, submit to the Governor
and to the Secretary of Health and Mental Hy-
giene the names of five of its members from
which the Governor selects appointees.

Two members are consumers appointed by the
Governor on the recommendation of the Secre-
tary of the Department of Health and Mental
Hygiene with the advice and consent of the Sen-
ate. The Board examines all applicants for regis-
tration as registered nurses and as licensed practi-
cal nurses and issues the proper certificates. It
keeps a register of the names of all registered
nurses and all licensed practical nurses, which is
open at all reasonable times to public scrutiny.
The Board renews registered nurse and licensed
practical nurse licenses biennially. The Board pre-
scribes standards for nursing education programs
and surveys such programs as are necessary in or-
der to meet the requirements of the Board (Code
1957, Art. 43, secs. 290-302).

The Board cooperates with the National Lea-
gue for Nursing in the preparation of its State
Board Test Pool Licensing Examinations and uses
these examinations.
