What is the Illinois Medical Practice Act

Updated: May 19, 2023

The Illinois Medical Practice Act is an essential state law that governs the practice of medicine in our state; without it, any person regardless of qualification could practice medicine in Illinois without restriction or penalty.

Because medicine is an ever-changing eld, the Act is set to expire on a regular basis, enabling the legislature to ensure that the law keeps pace with the current state of medical practice.

Unfortunately, this regular expiration has also allowed politicians and interest groups to use this indispensable piece of legislation as a tool for exercising political influence.
