2001 WISCONSIN ACT 76
An Act to amend 453.06 (2m) (b) and 453.06 (2m) (c) of the statutes; relating to: veterinary postgraduate training permits.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
453.06 (2m) (b) of the statutes is amended to read:
453.06 (2m) (b) Upon application, the examining board may grant a veterinary postgraduate training permit to a person undertaking intern or resident training at a school of veterinary medicine in this state. The applicant shall submit evidence that the applicant has successfully completed the national board examination and the clinical competency test, is scheduled to take the national board examination and clinical competency test for the first time, or is awaiting results on the national board examination and clinical competency test. The only purpose of the veterinary postgraduate training permit is to provide opportunities in this state for the postgraduate education of persons who have received the degree of doctor of veterinary medicine or an equivalent degree but who have not yet met the requirements for licensure in this state. Issuance of a postgraduate training permit does not modify in any respect the requirements for licensure to practice veterinary medicine in this state, and a permittee permit holder may practice veterinary medicine on privately owned animals only within the scope of the permittee's permit holder's internship or residency program. Violation of this restriction or of any applicable provision of this chapter constitutes cause for revocation of the permit.
453.06 (2m) (c) of the statutes is amended to read:
453.06 (2m) (c) A license issued under this subsection expires upon termination of the licensee's employment at a school of veterinary medicine in this state. A postgraduate training permit expires upon termination of the permittee's permit holder's internship or residency program, upon the permittee's failure to take the national board examination or the clinical competency test as scheduled, or upon notification to the permittee that he or she has failed to successfully complete either the national board examination or the clinical competency test.
