All allegations of misconduct raised opposed to medical professionals threaten a provider’s ability to practice medicine and to see patients, which also may collide with civilian credentials and licensure. As a general situation, a preliminary review will oversee—and unless the allegations are resolved to be entirely unsubstantiated or clearly baseless, government policy favors a full investigation. In nearly every action, the accountable commander disallows the practice of medicine until the next steps can be assessed.
The Department of Defense (DOD) Manual interpret that adverse action can be taken opposed to a military medical professional/medical provider if evidence reveals that incompetence, impairment, or misconduct proceed in harm or risk of harm to either patients or staff members. In most cases, the privileging authority in question will be limited to put a doctor who is subject to an investigation on non-clinical duties. This is known as abeyance. Depending on the nature of the abeyance, it may be reported to your state licensing board and ultimately may go to the Surgeon General.

As defined by the Military Health System (MHS), military medical abeyance is a:
“temporary assignment of 30 or fewer days of a contributor from clinical duties to non-clinical duties while an internal or external peer review or QA investigation is directed.”
All but very few intermission will not cause long-lasting implications to one’s civilian license. Being excluded from practicing medicine in the military bears several layers of method and it is vital to have an advocate well-versed in supporting you in how to navigate the layers of bureaucracy. If you sustain abeyance, your next call should be to an experienced military doctor defense lawyer. The medical provider subject to abeyance may have their advantages suspended after the initial 30 days have passed.
Do not wait to take the steps to protect your career. One of the biggest errors that military physicians, doctors, and other licensed providers make is waiting until they have already had a reportable action taken against their license. If you have been reserved to non-clinical duties or you have questions about your specific situation, please call our military medical abeyance attorneys for immediate assistance.

Abiding abeyance, a military medical provider may be subject to a Quality Assurance Investigation (QAI). These are important matters that can, finally, result in the suspension, reduction, or revocation of privileges. As part of this investigation, the medical professional under review will usually be asked to sit for an interview.
Any and all statements made during this interview will be part of the official record—meaning they can be used in opposition to you in proceedings that may result in the suspension or revocation of your qualifications. In far too many cases, doctors inadvertently make declaration that are misinterpreted or taken out of condition and otherwise used against them. For this reason, it is best to consult with a military medical suspension attorney before an interview.
Once the QAI is complete, the findings will be mentioned to the credentialing board of the relevant Military Treatment Facility (MTF). Based on the information provided, the MTF board will make a suggestion to the commander—who must then make a conclusion on how to proceed. Depending on the circumstances, the commander may order:
Prompt reinstatement;
Reinstatement with additional monitoring;
Poor action; or
The convening of a peer analysis panel.
If a peer review panel is convened, then an additional investigation is likely. Indeed, more documents, records, and testimony can be obtained by the panel. After analyzing all relevant evidence, the peer review panel can make recommendations to a commander—potentially including suspension of privileges and outright de-credentialing. Often contributors are told they are not entitled to review what the peer review panel saw or worse, that they may not turn in matters for consideration to the peer review panel. Understanding what a contributor may have and may turn in is critical to best efforts to not have a reportable action as opposed to a provider’s license.
