Report of Regents Professional Practice Executive Session Committee to The Board of Regents

Your Professional Practice Committee held its scheduled meeting on July 12, 2021. All members were present in-person or participated by video conference call. Chancellor Lester W. Young, Jr., and Regent Kathleen M. Cashin also attended the meeting, but did not vote on any case or action.


Professional Discipline Cases

Your Committee recommends that the reports of the Regents Review Committees, including rulings, findings of fact, determinations as to guilt, and recommendations, by unanimous or majority vote, contained in those reports which have been distributed to you, be accepted in 1 case.  In addition, your Committee recommends, upon the recommendation of the Committee on the Professions, that 33 consent order applications and 4 surrender applications be granted, with Regent Catherine Collins abstaining from all consent order cases.

These recommendations are made following the review of 38 cases involving eleven registered professional nurses, eight licensed practical nurses, three licensed clinical social workers, two certified public accountants, two dentists, two licensed practical nurses who are also registered professional nurses, one acupuncturist, one architect, one dental hygienist, one licensed mental health counselor, one pharmacy, one professional engineer, and one registered professional nurse who is also a nurse practitioner (Family Health).


Your Committee recommends the following:

That the application of Peter Corines for the restoration of his license to practice as a Physician in New York State be denied at this time. [PPC EXS (A) 4]


Chancellor and Colleagues: Your Professional Practice Committee recommends, and we move, that the Board of Regents act affirmatively upon each recommendation in the written report of the Committee's deliberations at its meeting on July 12, 2021, copies of which have been distributed to each Regent.


Your Committee discussed several topics of interest, including:

  • Deputy Commissioner's Report/Update 
  • Full Board Consent Agenda Items
    • Board (Re)Appointments
    • Licensing Petitions/Conferral of Degrees
