Regulations of the Department of Public Health at 105 CMR 700.004 (B)(5) permit residents and clinical fellows who have limited medical licenses and wish to prescribe, dispense and administer controlled substances to utilize the registration of the hospital in which he/she is employed provided the following criteria are met:
It should be noted that individual hospitals determine whether or not they wish to permit persons with limited licenses to use the registration of the hospital. Should a hospital determine that they do not want individuals with limited licenses to utilize the hospital's registration, the physician must apply to the Department and, where applicable, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and receive Controlled Substances Registrations for the period of time for which their limited license is issued. Upon full licensure by the Board of Registration in Medicine, a physician must then reapply to the Department, and, where applicable, to the DEA for a new full registration(s). The appropriate fee must accompany the application to the Department. The newly issued registration will not be restricted to the period of time in which the limited license was valid.
