Section 34-24-507Reciprocity.

Notwithstanding any of the provisions of this article, the commission shall only issue a special purpose license to practice medicine or osteopathy across state lines to an applicant whose principal practice location and license to practice is located in a state or territory of the United States whose laws permit or allow for the issuance of a special purpose license to practice medicine or osteopathy across state lines or similar license to a physician whose principal practice location and license is located in this state. It is the stated intent of this article that physicians and osteopaths who hold a full and current license in the State of Alabama be afforded the opportunity to obtain, on a reciprocal basis, a license to practice medicine or osteopathy across state lines in any state or territory of the United States as a pre-condition to the issuance of a special purpose license as authorized by this article to a physician or osteopath licensed in such state or territory. The State Board of Medical Examiners shall determine which states or territories have reciprocal licensure requirements meeting the qualifications of this section.
