                                     LRB093 07605 AMC 07784 b

 1        AN ACT in relation to the regulation of professions.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.   The Medical Practice Act of 1987 is amended
 5    by changing Section 10 as follows:

 6        (225 ILCS 60/10) (from Ch. 111, par. 4400-10)
 7        (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2007)
 8        Sec. 10.  Duties of the Department. The Department shall:
 9        (A)  Make  rules  for  establishing  reasonable   minimum
10    standards  of  educational  requirements  to  be  observed by
11    medical, osteopathic and chiropractic colleges.;
12        (B)  Effectuate the policy of the State of Illinois  that
13    the  quality of medical training is an appropriate concern in
14    the recruiting, licensing, credentialing and participation in
15    residency  programs  of   physicians.      However,   it   is
16    inappropriate  to  discriminate against any physician because
17    of  national  origin  or  geographic  location   of   medical
18    education.;
19        (C)  Formulate  rules  and  regulations  required for the
20    administration of this Act.
