IL medical licensing department faces backlogs

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 25, 2013
Illinois could lose 3,000 medical residents to other states this year since budget shortfalls have left the state with one person to process applications for new medical licenses. Last week, 18 workers in the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation's medical unit were moved to other state offices, leaving the office with eight employees—one to process licenses, one coordinator, three investigators to handle complaints against doctors and three attorneys to argue those cases for the state.
