§ 2017. Mental or Physical Examination of Fitness for Licensure.
In addition to any other requirements for licensure, when considering the approval of an application, the board may require the applicant to be examined by one or more physicians and surgeons or psychologists designated by the board if it reasonably appears that the applicant may be unable to practice veterinary medicine safely due to mental or physical illness affecting competency. The board shall pay the full cost of such examination. The board shall seek that the evaluation be conducted within 60 days of the date the applicant is advised that the examination is required. The board shall receive the examiner's evaluation within 60 days of the date the examination is completed. An applicant's failure to comply with the requirement shall render his or her application incomplete. The report of the evaluation shall be made available to the applicant. If after receiving the evaluation report the board determines that the applicant is unable to safely practice, the board may deny the application.
