CORRECTION REGARDING TMB AND FINGERPRINTS

Today's EVPGram contained some misleading information regarding the Texas Medical Board (TMB) requirement for physician fingerprints as part of the licensing process. The TMB started taking fingerprints from applicants on Oct. 1, 2007. The board continues to require fingerprints of all physicians who had a new application pending on Oct. 1 or who have submitted a new application since that date. The TMB is not yet requiring fingerprints of current licensees. The board plans to start capturing that information in the not-too-distant future, but that requirement is estimated to be at least two months away.
