Medical Practice Act Commission - RG 556 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Medical Practice Act Commission - RG 556


Historical Note: In 1957 the General Assembly established a commission to study problems in the administration of the Medical Practice Act of 1923 (L. 1957, p. 1017). The commission consisted of five members of the Senate and five from the House and an additional five members appointed by the Governor. The commission was to study medical education and licensure in the state and any problems relating to the Medical Practice Act of 1923 which had empowered the director of the Department of Registration and Education to license everyone practicing medicine in the state (L. 1923, p. 436). The commission was to report its findings to the Governor and the General Assembly and offer recommendations for changes in the act. The commission reported to the General Assembly in 1959 and recommended that its life be extended for another two years. The commission completed its work and submitted its final report in 1961.
