Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A physician applied for a medical staff appointment at a hospital but then withdrew the application before a final decision was made by the hospital's governing body. The physician was not being specifically investigated by the hospital. Should the withdrawal of the application be reported to the NPDB?

    No. Absent a particular investigation, the voluntary withdrawal of an application for medical staff appointment or clinical privileges should not be reported to the NPDB.
