Q&A: Reporting Professional Society
Membership Actions

  1. A professional society's ethics committee takes a professional review action to place a physician on probation for 60 days for falsifying a résumé. Should this action be reported to the NPDB?

    It depends. Generally, if the professional society determines that falsifying the résumé is professional conduct that adversely affects, or could adversely affect, the health or welfare of a patient, the action must be reported to the NPDB.
