ORS 686.065¹
Issuance of temporary license to certain applicants

(1) An applicant for a license may be issued a temporary license by the Oregon State Veterinary Medical Examining Board who at the time of application:

(a) Holds a valid current license to practice veterinary medicine in another state or territory of the United States; and

(b) Has been actively engaged in some form of veterinary medicine practice for at least one year preceding the date of application.

(2) The temporary license issued under the provisions of this section entitles the applicant to engage in the active practice of veterinary medicine in this state and the applicant shall be eligible for the next examination. No temporary license shall be valid beyond the time for the next license examination for which the applicant is qualified. In the event any such applicant failed for good and sufficient reason to take the examination or was unable to pass it, and in the unanimous opinion of the board the applicant is sufficiently qualified to entitle the applicant to a second examination, the board, by unanimous consent, may extend the temporary license until the next succeeding examination. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the holder of a temporary license must be examined and satisfactorily pass the license examination next following the issuance of the temporary license and duly receive a license in order to continue active professional practice.
