Losing a medical license can be detrimental for anyone working in the medical field. In some situations, the medical professional may be eligible to restore their licesnse. Applying to have your medical professional license restored is no easy feat if it has been revoked. The Office of Professional Medical Conduct is very stringent on restoring medical licenses so it is important to start preparing to apply for restoration from the day you have it revoked.
The three issues that must be addressed when you are attempting to have your license restored are remorse, rehabilitation, and re-education. If you lost your medical license because of substance abuse, it is important that you show that you have been actively trying to rehabilitate yourself. You will need to fill out a form detailing your rehabilitative actions. One of the most important things in this process is that you own up to your actions, accept full responsibility, and show how you are working to better yourself so the issue never happens again. One way that you can show that you are remorseful for your actions is through community service. Finally, you will be required to show that you have attended Continued Medical Education classes that prove you have been keeping up to date on medical innovations and that you are still fit to practice if your license gets restored. You should also be prepared to answer why you should be reinstated and what you will do if your license is reinstated.
