OAR 847-050-0025
Interview and Examination


In addition to all other requirements for licensure, the Board may require the applicant to appear for a personal interview regarding information received in the application process. Unless excused in advance, failure to appear before the Board for a personal interview violates ORS 677.190 (Grounds for suspending, revoking or refusing to grant license, registration or certification)(17) and may subject the applicant to disciplinary action.


The applicant is required to pass an open-book examination on the Medical Practice Act (ORS chapter 677) and Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) chapter 847, division 050. If an applicant fails the open-book examination three times, the applicant’s application will be reviewed by the Board. An applicant who has failed the open-book examination three times must also attend an informal meeting with a Board member, the Executive Director, a Board investigator and/or the Medical Director of the Board to discuss the applicant’s failure of the examination, before being given a fourth and final attempt to pass the examination. If the applicant does not pass the examination on the fourth attempt, the applicant may be denied licensure.
