The below came from the July 1995 Board minutes:
Because of an administrative oversight a Doctor was not properly
registered at Maricopa County Medical Center's residency program.
Following review of all pertinent records the Board approved the
Doctor's application for an Arizona medical license. Ms. Hugunin questioned
whether the Board wished to be informed when similar situations occur
with other applicants.
Following discussion the Board decided it does not need to review
applications where information is obtained indicating that because
of an administrative error an applicant was not properly registered
in a residency program.
