Pursuant to §164.151 of the Act, a physician may be reissued a medical license or reinstated to the practice of medicine only if the physician demonstrates that the reissuance or reinstatement is in the physician's best interests. Best interests of the physician may include, but not be limited to, an assessment by the Board as to whether the physician:   (1) understands all issues of competency, technical, educational, training or ethical limitations as found in the order which led to the revocation or suspension of a license; and   (2) demonstrates that risk of further disciplinary proceedings for the revocation or suspension of the license of the physician will be minimal or minimized if the physician is returned to the practice of medicine.
