The Temporary Educational Permit (TEP) for medicine and surgery permits the holder to practice medicine and surgery, osteopathic medicine and surgery or any of their allied specialties in a supervised educational program approved by the Nebraska Board of Medicine and Surgery. A temporary educational permit may be issued to any person who is enrolled in an approved graduate medical educational program conducted by an accredited hospital, school or college of medicine (commonly referred to as a residency).
Individuals holding a TEP (residents) can only practice medicine and surgery within the residency program. Residents who only hold a TEP may not practice outside of the residency (moonlight).
