[quote]You don't need to keep up with CEU's when your license is on inactive status. That applies to Physicians and Nurses.

Uh, you may actually want to read the link you posted. In the application to reactivate the license it clearly states in Part 4 Inactive Status that the applicant must have completed 50 hours of continuing medical education (pretty much says that for any of the parts, btw) in the prior 2 years before applying for reactivation.

Thank you for proving what I stated about her not being able to just jump back into being a doctor. I know that wasn't your intention. But, nevertheless, you did prove what I said. Thank you.

Which means that she could complete 50 hours of CEU's this week and make herself current, jumping right back into being a doctor and not needing years of SS

50 hours of CME crammed into one week? Not likely.

It's a long term marriage. One where she hasn't been practicing as a doctor for the majority of it, this isn't a recent event. And there was no mention of whether or not she actually applied to have her license made inactive, it may have expired for all we know. Her current income is what is going to be used as it has been firmly established that she is not a practicing doctor and has not been for the majority of the marriage.

It's a long term marriage, she's going to get spousal support. And the longer he stays married, the longer the spousal support will be for.

You could easily do it in a few weeks. Most of it can be done online now. You do realize that on average a 1 hr CEU can be done in less than 15 minutes right? Do you know how most complete the credits? They go straight to the test, and keep on doing it until they get the required 80% pass rate. Most don't even read the material. Then you print the certificate.

No physician lets their license lapse.

I work with doctors who come back from retirement all the time. It's a simple transition. In fact, we hve one of our surgeons coming back after being gone for 5 years due to one of his old partners retiring.

You're making this out to be a big deal when it isn't. She won't get sh!t all for Spousal support when she could easily be back practicing almost immediately.

She's not in need of rehabilitative maintenance, not when she can be earning more than him within the year.

[quote]Ugh, you don't need to complete it in one week. It's 50 hrs per 2 years. Meaning once your license is activated you have to do the 50 hrs per renewal. [/quote]

My bad, but I still disagree with the statement that she won't get spousal support. However; if she did not apply to inactivate her license and just let it expire, it is canceled. And she has to meet all of the current requirements of getting a license. Which probably won't give her a license until she has met the CME requirement for the last 7 years.

She's going to get spousal support. It doesn't matter whether you like it or not. It has been firmly established that for the majority of the marriage she has not been a practicing doctor.

...a decent lawyer could have her income imputed at what a local doctor makes, and award HIM alimony for having a reduced lifestyle because she didn't want to work.

You know, with the right spin and media guidance, I bet you could WIN a case like that.

She can step into a job making more than him within 6 months of them splitting. There is no way a judge is going to give her alimony when her ability to be self supporting an earning a salary larger than his is an expressly available option. If she doesn't want to be a doctor, and purposely chooses to live on a reduced income, when she has the ability to earn more, why should he have to pay that?

Huh ?

A regular workweek is 40 hours, most doctors work more than that. Even if it actually took her 50 hours, why couldn't that EASILY be accomplished in one week ?

I could bang out 50 hours of nursing CEU's in 8 hours.

Ummmm? Very likely. Duh. That's how many hours most doctor's probably work as it is. If you can work 50 hours in a week, you can get 50 hours of CPE in a week. However, most likely they'd have to spread it out over a FEW weeks because you have to find what is offered. But in the whole grand scheme, yes she can 'jump right into the workforce.'
