Effective immediately, the Texas Medical Board has made three amendments to its rules as it relates to licensure for a medical license in Texas. The three rule changes are:
• The amendment to §163.2, relating to Full Texas Medical License, sets out medical graduation requirements for 5th pathway applicants to be consistent with rules relating to other types of applicants for full licensure.
• The amendment to §163.4, relating to Procedural Rules for Licensure Applicants, provides that if an applicant for licensure has violated §170.002 or Chapter 171, Texas Health and Safety Code, the applicant will be considered ineligible for licensure.
• The amendment to §163.5, relating to Licensure Documentation, amends the clinical clerkship affidavit regarding U.S. clinical clerkships so that language is consistent with the Board’s processes; and provides a remedy for licensure to applicants for licensure who are otherwise ineligible for licensure due to a deficient medical clerkship obtained while in medical school.
