The time when you were a medical student may seem like a lifetime ago. All those years of study, hard work and perseverance finally paid off, and you earned a license to practice medicine in Ohio. Many doctors say they enjoy their work and are very satisfied with their careers. Others frequently lament the downsides of the profession, including long hours, lack of personal time and high-stress situations.
You have sunk a lot of money into your business. In addition, you probably put time and sweat into making it work, drawing in customers and establishing an atmosphere people enjoy. When the time came to renew your liquor license, you filled out the paperwork and mailed it in before the deadline.
If your career and reputation depends on your professional license, one of your biggest goals as you go through each work day should be to protect it. The primary way to do this is to anticipate what is expected of you ethically, and make continuous efforts as you do your job and deal with clients or patients to assure that your actions will be interpreted as ethical and sound. At the very least, you should be able to show that your conduct was consistently in good faith, and that you believed your actions were in the best interest of the clients or patients who sought your care or advice.
If you are a doctor or physician assistant who wishes to practice in Ohio; you must obtain a medical license from the State Medical Board of Ohio and abide by any and all applicable medical licensure rules and requirements.
