ATLANTA (AP) — Doctors in Georgia could soon be required to undergo sexual misconduct training under a bill that passed the state House on Friday.
House Bill 458 would require that physicians and dentists undergo a one-time training on sexual misconduct that lasts at least three hours.
The bill would also require that medical schools build sexual misconduct training into their curriculum.
It passed 131-27 and heads to the Senate for more work.
Rep. Sharon Cooper is a Republican from Marietta. She said the bill was brought to her by the Georgia Composite Medical Board, which licenses physicians in the state.
