RULE 360-2-.15. Administrative Licenses

(1) Definitions. As used in this rule, the following words shall mean:

(a) "Administrative Medicine" means administration or management utilizing the medical and clinical knowledge, skill, and judgment of a licensed physician capable of affecting the health and safety of the public or any person but shall not include the practice of medicine.

(b) "Administrative medicine license" means a licensed issued by the Board to engage in the practice of administrative medicine.

(c) "Board" means the Georgia Composite Medical Board.

(2) An applicant for an administrative medicine license shall meet all the requirements for issuance of a full license as provided in Rule 360-2-.01 except that the applicant shall not be required to show recent clinical practice.

(3) An administrative license, once issued, shall be renewable as provided in Rule 360-2-.05 and such applicant for renewal must comply with the provisions relating to continuing education as provided in Rule 360-15-.01.

(4) A person holding an administrative medicine license shall not be authorized to perform any surgical procedure, write prescriptions, or practice any clinical medicine.

(5) Licensees shall be subject to disciplinary provisions of O.C.G.A. ยงยง43-34-8, as well as the Board rules governing unprofessional conduct.

(6) This Rule shall have no effect on any person holding an unrestricted license issued prior to the effective date of this Rule; provided, however, that the license of any physician who has agreed to a board order where the only requirement of the order is the restriction of practice to administrative medicine based solely on the failure to meet the licensure clinical requirements to be engaged in the active practice of medicine may convert the license to an administrative medicine license by applying to the Board for such change and the Board's order regarding such physician shall be terminated.

(7) The Board may convert an administrative license to a full and unrestricted license. In order to convert an administrative medicine license to a full and unrestricted license, the administrative medicine licensee shall submit an application to the Board and shall demonstrate to the satisfaction of the board such licensee has the clinical competence to practice medicine under an unrestricted license and meets all applicable eligibility requirements for an unrestricted license including, but not be limited to, requiring the administrative medicine licensee to pass any examination or examinations the board deems necessary demonstrating clinical competency.

(8) The fee for the application and for renewals and late renewals shall be designated in the fee schedule.
