The Medical Board must have all items before it will issue a Certificate of Registration. If the Medical Board believes a faculty member is immediately licensable, it may deny the Section 2113 request.

The purpose of the Section 2113 Certificate of Registration is to allow a faculty member, who holds a 100% appointment at a California medical school the right to practice medicine within the scope of the faculty appointment. The Certificate does not allow the faculty member to open a private office outside of the UCLA faculty position.

The Certificate will be issued for one year at a time; it may be renewed annually for a total of 5 years. The Medical Board has the discretionary authority to require that the faculty member obtain an ECFMG Certificate prior to issuing a renewal of a 2113 Certificate.
