The practice of medicine was first regulated in
Maryland by Chapter 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

represent the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty and
the other the State Homeopathic Society. The
Legislature of 1957 abolished the Homeopathic
Board. The practice of medicine in Maryland is
now regulated solely by the State Board of Medical

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 determines
qualifications for practice by the FLEX examina-
tion (Federal Licensing Examination), endorse-
ment of licenses obtained in a reciprocating state,
or endorsement of a certificate of the National
Board of Medical Examiners. FLEX examinations
are held in June and December of each year.

The Board also regulates the practice of medi-

psychiatrists' assistants, cardiac rescue technicians,
aviation trauma technicians, unlicensed medical
practitioners in approved medical training pro-
grams, and acupuncturists.

Since 1967 the Board has licensed certain osteo-
paths on the basis of endorsement, depending upon
