Collora Partners Present BBA Panel on Practicing Before the BoRM and DHPL


Collora partners, Paul Cirel and Eve Slattery, present as members of the faculty for a Boston Bar Association panel entitled, "Practicing Before the Board of Registration in Medicine and the Division of Health Professions Licensure."

In this heavily regulated industry, credentialing and licensing of health care practitioners requires stringent compliance with myriad rules and regulations. The Board of Registration in Medicine (“BoRM”) and the Department of Public Health (DPH), specifically, the Division of Professional Licensure (DHPL), are the primary regulators of licensed health care practitioners in the Commonwealth. The role of counsel is to understand the nuances of the practice and ensure the client’s interests are protected. Failure to comply with BoRM’s and DHPL’s rules and regulations can have significant consequences for your client.

In this program, attendees will hear directly from representatives of BoRM and DHPL, as well as from seasoned practitioners before these boards. In addition to giving the audience practical tips and advice, speakers will address:

  • The composition of and duties and responsibilities assigned to the BoRM and DHPL
  • The nuances of the practice and the complexities inherent in the system.
  • When, if ever, is it appropriate to challenge the BoRM’s or DHPL’s apparent authority and how to do so without jeopardizing your client’s professional reputation and ability to practice his/her profession.

This event takes place on Wednesday, September 30th from 3-6pm at the Boston Bar Association.  For more information and to register, please visit the BBA website.
