NOTICE-On October 20, 2015 the Louisiana Register published certain amendments to the Board's rules on unprofessional conduct, LAC 46:XLV.7603. The
publication inadvertently included wording that the Board had instructed be removed e.g., a physician shall "b. not hold himself or herself out as a specialist in an area
of medical practice unless the physician has successfully completed a residency of fellowship training program, which is accredited by the American Council on
Graduate Medical Education of the American Medical Association, the American Osteopathic Association, or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada."
The cited language was previously removed from this rulemaking effort by the Board. See: Potpourri Section of the July 2015 edition of the Register (LR 41:1416),
whreat the Board noted that "After further review the board has decided to defer proceeding at this time on the amendments originally proposed in §7603A.9 (e.g.,
holding one's self out as a specialist and proceed only with the proposed amendments to §7603A.11."
The Register has agreed to reprint the corrected Rule removing the cited language, with an explanatory note, in the November edition of the Register.
