Each year, the AMA Judicial Council conducts a survey of disciplinary actions by state boards of medical examiners and state medical societies. Proceedings by state boards determine whether licenses to practice medicine should be suspended, revoked, or whether action designed to secure compliance with the medical practice act provisions, such as censure or reprimand, should be taken. Disciplinary hearings by state medical societies ascertain whether a member physician should be suspended or expelled because of unethical conduct. Ordinarily, state boards of medical examiners conduct more disciplinary proceedings than state medical societies, because state boards have jurisdiction over all physicians in the state, while medical societies can deal only with their membership. The results of the study conducted for the calendar year 1966 appear herein. The figures reported were obtained from questionnaires mailed to state medical society executive secretaries and the secretaries of state boards of medical examiners.
