Guam - The new Guam Board of Medical Examiners are working on reminding physicians of their duty to renew their licenses. The board met this afternoon to discuss the additional requirements that will need to be met for continued medical licensure.

GBME chairperson Dr. Joan Gill said more and more licensing boards across the nation are requiring more detailed information to continue practicing medicine. Gill said the board will require physicians seeking a renewal of their license to show evidence that they are taking continuing medical education to maintain their licensure, specifically in their area of medicine as well as showing examples that they are maintaining competency in their field. 

Physicians will receive notices in the next two to three weeks about the renewal requirement as they must submit their application by October 31. The board added that the end goal is to improve transparency and eventually launch a website for the public to have access to their physician's history and medical credentials.
