Temporary permits for supervised practice in state institution--Qualifications of
applicants--Duration and renewal.
If it appears to the State Board of Medical and Osteopathic
Examiners by a resolution thereof duly made and adopted, that an urgent need exists in any state-owned and operated medical institution for the services of a practitioner of medicine, surgery, and
obstetrics and their branches, as a state employee, which cannot be adequately and effectively served
by a regularly licensed practitioner, the board may, in its discretion, grant a temporary permit to an
applicant who has satisfactorily passed a special examination and paid a fee not to exceed fifty
dollars for the examination, notwithstanding that the applicant has not completed the period of
internship or residence training in a hospital approved by the board and has failed or has been unable
to satisfactorily show that he is a graduate of an approved medical or osteopathic college. The
temporary permit shall be issued and be effective for one year from the date of issuance of such
permit. The temporary permit entitles the person to whom issued to engage in the practice of
medicine, surgery, and obstetrics and their branches as a state employee under the supervision of a
licensed physician in such state-owned and operated medical institution and not elsewhere. Such
temporary permit may be renewed by the board upon application to it on an annual basis and the
payment of an annual renewal fee of not to exceed fifteen dollars. Except as may otherwise be
provided in this section, applications for such temporary permits shall be processed in the same
manner as regular license applications under § 36-4-11, and the holder of any such permit is subject
to all restrictions, responsibilities, and privileges inuring to regular licensees under this chapter. The
examination and renewal fees provided for in this section shall be set by the board by rules
promulgated pursuant to chapter 1-26.
