Board of Medicine Amends HB 793 Regulations

The Virginia Board of Medicine convened and discussed the draft regulations for HB 793. Though the Committee of the Joint Boards and the Board of Nursing had both passed draft regulations that defined “five years of full-time experience” as 8,000 hours (an average of 1,600 hours/year) at their respective meetings, the Board of Medicine decided to amend the draft regulations, changing the definition of “five years of full-time experience” to 9,000 hours.
