Provides medical licensing boards with a referral resource for physicians who wish to reenter the practice of medicine after an absence or for reinstatement of a license following a disciplinary action.

LifeGuard selects various Assessment Tools to measure clinical competence as part of the case management process. A unique and common component involves time in an active practice setting through a customized preceptorship or shadowing arrangement. 

In addition, LifeGuard will develop individualized recommendations for remediation, as required, based on deficiencies identified through the assessment process. The recommendations for remediation afford the physician the opportunity to refresh knowledge and skills.
