CA Physician Fails P.A.C.E.-- Medical Board Grants Retestby Stephen M. Boreman on January 05, 2016
A California physician was on probation with a requirement to undergo and pass the Physician Assessment and Clinical Education (P.A.C.E.) program at the University of California, San Diego. The P.A.C.E. evaluation was conducted in two parts. It included an oral clinical evaluation and a hands-on practice simulation, in addition to physical and psychological testing. The physician was subsequently informed of failure of the clinical portion of the examination. An order to cease practice followed. The Medical Board then filed an Accusation and Petition to Revoke Probation.
