(5) place the licensee on probationary status and require the licensee to

(A) report regularly to the department upon matters involving the basis of probation;

(B) limit practice to those areas prescribed;

(C) continue professional education until a satisfactory degree of skill has been attained in areas determined by the department to need improvement;

(6) impose limitations or conditions on the practice of the licensee.

(b) The department may withdraw probationary status of a licensee if it finds that the deficiencies that required the sanction have been remedied.

(c) The department may summarily suspend a license before final hearing or during the appeals process if the department finds that the licensee poses a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety if the licensee continues to practice. A licensee whose license is suspended under this section is entitled to a hearing conducted by the office of administrative hearings (AS 44.64.010 ) not later than seven days after the effective date of the order. The licensee may appeal the suspension after a hearing to a court of competent jurisdiction.
