Plenary License

A Plenary license means a license which has NO restrictions on the area of medicine that the recipient can practice in that jurisdiction.

For example: If the world's richest man were to receive a plenary medical license (all MEDICAL licenses are plenary), and built his own hospital, assuming that he could afford to self insure, he could legally practice any area of medicine he chose. Why? because licensing laws do not restrict what area a physician may practice. If there is any restriction at all, it comes from an insurance carrier, and/or the hospital which delineates privileges based on for what Boards that practitioner has become eligible or certified. NOT BY LAW.
