State Board of Medical Examiners to issue certificate of qualification for each applicant; right of appeal when action unfavorable.

It shall be the duty of the State Board of Medical Examiners to issue a certificate of qualification to the Medical Licensure Commission certifying each applicant for a license who has successfully passed the required examination or whose application for a license or certificate of qualification by reciprocity has been acted upon favorably by the board, or whose application for a certificate of qualification without examination or application for reinstatement of a certificate of qualification has been acted upon favorably by the board. Any applicant whose application either for an initial certificate of qualification or for reinstatement of a certificate of qualification is not acted upon favorably by the board shall have the right of appeal to the commission which shall have the authority to either affirm the board's action or order the board to issue a certificate of qualification to the applicant.
