Program assesses when disciplined physicians can resume practicing medicine

The Wall Street Journal (4/13, R5, Landro) reports on the Physician Assessment and Clinical Education Program (PACE) at the University of California-San Diego, which is designed to assess when doctors who have been disciplined can resume practicing medicine. PACE faculty and staff evaluate physicians’ abilities and offer remedial courses, as well as a brief mini-residency. The program has also been used by other state medical boards.
