DWI and Medical Professionals

Driving while intoxicated is handled very seriously in the U.S., largely because of the negative connotations that our society assigns to the crime.

Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals can lose their jobs and future opportunities because of DWI charges.

License Implications

A hospital or clinic can fire employees for a host of reasons. Many consider DWI a grievous enough offense that a doctor or nurse convicted of DWI could lose his or her job. In today’s job market, this is a terrible outcome, but it isn’t as detrimental as losing your medical license. This is a very real possibility for many in the medical profession. The following types of medical professionals may be subject to a loss of license under certain circumstances:

  • Doctors
  • Surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Medical specialists

Once a license is lost, getting it back can be difficult and time consuming, and the damage to your reputation will have already been done. As such, it is important for anyone charged with DWI to do everything they can to fight a conviction.
