In the Matter of Thomas J. Kim, M.D. to Practice


The authority of the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners
includes the ability to grant licensure conditioned by a
reprimand. Because the Board is vested not only with the
greater power to deny, revoke, or suspend a physician's medical
license, N.J.S.A. 45:1-21, but also with the power to invoke the
lesser sanctions of warnings, reprimands, or censure, N.J.S.A.
45:1-22(a), we concluded that to limit the exercise of the power
to grant or deny licensure, separate from the imposition of a
lesser and perhaps more appropriate action, was irrational and
may thwart the effectiveness of the Board's fundamental dual
purpose -- to permit qualified physicians licensure while
protecting the State citizenry.
