AS 08.01.075. Disciplinary Powers of Boards.

(a) A board may take the following disciplinary actions, singly or in combination:

(1) permanently revoke a license;

(2) suspend a license for a specified period;

(3) censure or reprimand a licensee;

(4) impose limitations or conditions on the professional practice of a licensee;

(5) require a licensee to submit to peer review;

(6) impose requirements for remedial professional education to correct deficiencies in the education, training, and skill of the licensee;

(7) impose probation requiring a licensee to report regularly to the board on matters related to the grounds for probation;

(8) impose a civil fine not to exceed $5,000.

(b) A board may withdraw probationary status if the deficiencies that required the sanction are remedied.

(c) A board may summarily suspend a licensee from the practice of the profession before a final hearing is held or during an appeal if the board finds that the licensee poses a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety. A person is entitled to a hearing conducted by the office of administrative hearings (AS 44.64.010 ) to appeal the summary suspension within seven days after the order of suspension is issued. A person may appeal an adverse decision of the board on an appeal of a summary suspension to a court of competent jurisdiction.

(d) A board may reinstate a suspended or revoked license if, after a hearing, the board finds that the applicant is able to practice the profession with skill and safety.

(e) A board may accept the voluntary surrender of a license. A license may not be returned unless the board determines that the licensee is competent to resume practice and the licensee pays the appropriate renewal fee.

(f) A board shall seek consistency in the application of disciplinary sanctions. A board shall explain a significant departure from prior decisions involving similar facts in the order imposing the sanction.
