New bill would require more training for Wisconsin doctors
MADISON -- A new bill being introduced in the state legislature would require doctors to undergo two years of training after medical school in order to obtain a license.
Current law only requires one year of training.
A Wisconsin State Journal report says the bill would apply to all US and foreign medical school graduates, and would not affect people who currently hold a license.
The bill was introduced Friday. It is also expected to change requirements for visiting physicians and create a new administrative license for doctors who aren't currently practicing.
