Rule 4731-31-01 Requirements for assessing and granting clearance for return to practice and competition

The Medical Board approved revising the rule to reflect comments received at the hearing. The version that was on the May 13th hearing agenda has been withdrawn because the revisions render more than fifty percent of the rule to be amended. Accordingly, the current rule will need to be rescinded and the approved language adopted as a new rule 4731-31-01. The proposed new rule will be filed for review in the future.
