Probably not. However, this does not guarantee that the Nevada Board of Medical Examiners or the Nevada Board of Osteopathic Medicine will allow you to become a physician. Each case is unique and the Board looks at each individual case and does not have a unitary disciplinary policy. Many factors are taken into consideration when an applicant with a DUI/DUID conviction applies for licensure. It is important to consult with a knowledgeable professional license defense attorney to craft an appropriate strategy to respond to any potential concerns regarding licensure by the Board.

Please do not attempt to handle your licensing matter yourself or retain an attorney that does not understand the intricacies and nuances of the professional licensing boards. Your lawyer must be able to contemplate the effect a criminal plea can have on your medical license. For example, many attorneys are not aware that a plea of no contest is the same as a guilty plea in the eyes of the Board.
As a courtesy, I am enclosing a chart that has probable disciplinary actions for offenses and convictions. This is provided only for general information and guidance purposes, every case is unique and disciplinary outcomes can vary from case to case.
