In Maryland, authority to hcense physicians was
first granted to the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty
of the Stare of Maryland in their charter (Chapter
105, Acts of 1798) From 1798 to 1838, the Facul-
ty examined candidates, issued licenses upon pay-
ment of a fee, and prosecuted unlicensed doctors
The pennons of botanic medical pracnnoners in-
fluenced the legislature to pass a law in 1838 allow-
ing any person to collect fees for medical services
performed (Chapter 30, Acts of 1838), which ef
fecnvely ended the licensing of doctors unnl 1888

The State Board of Health then licensed all
physicians (Chapter 429, Acts of 1888) In 1892, two
Boards of Medical Examiners earned on this function
One represented the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty
and the other the State Homeopathic Society (Chap-
ter 296, Acts of 1892) The General Assembly in 1957
abolished the Homeopathic Board and provided for
the State Board of Medical Examiners to regulate the
pracnce ofmediane In 1988, the Board was replaced
by the State Board of Physiaan Quality Assurance
(Chapter 109, Acts of 1988) Certain functions of the
Commission on Medical Discipline in Maryland were
assigned to the Board in 1988

The Board tests and licenses physicians to prac-
Oce medicine in the State For certain causes, the
Board may revoke the license of any physician
Candidates for licenses must be graduates of medi-
cal schools approved by the American Medical As-
sociation 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 examina-
tion given by the Educational Council for Foreign
Medical Graduates The Board determines
qualifications for practice by the FLEX examination
(Federal Licensing Examination), endorsement of
licenses obtained in a reciprocating state, or endor-
sement 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 unlicensed practice
of medicine by physicians' assistants, psychiatrists'
assistants, cardiac rescue technicians, aviation
trauma technicians, medical practitioners,
acupuncturists, medical radiation technologists,
and nuclear medical technologists in approved
medical training programs

Since 1967 the Board has licensed certain os-
teopaths on the basis of endorsement, depending
upon qualifications (Code Health Occupations Ar-
ticle, sec 14-310)
