Amends the Medical Practice Act of 1987.

Sets forth criteria that the Medical Licensing Board may consider in making a determination of professional capacity, and makes other changes concerning professional capacity. Makes a change concerning a visiting professor permit. Changes references from "licensure without examination" to "licensure by endorsement". Makes a change concerning requiring an examination. Requires the State's Attorney of each county to report to the Disciplinary Board, within 5 days after a conviction, all instances in which a person licensed under the Act is convicted of any felony or a class A misdemeanor for an act or conduct similar to an act or conduct that would constitute grounds for disciplinary action (now, the State's Attorney must report all instances in which a licensee is convicted or otherwise found guilty of any felony). Allows the disclosure of certain confidential information to a medical licensing authority of another state or jurisdiction in certain instances. Makes other changes. Repeals a Section concerning the practice of medicine by persons licensed in any other state who have applied to the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for a license to practice medicine in all of its branches.
