Alaska defines “unprofessional conduct” by a physician as conduct that deviates from generally recognized professional standards. Alaska providers numerous examples of acts that constitute unprofessional conduct including (1) the intentional or negligent disclosure of confidential patient information; (2) the failure to “prepare and maintain accurate, complete, and legible [patient records];” (3) falsifying or impermissibly destroying medical records; and (4) failing to provide a patient with a copy of their medical record within thirty days of the patient’s request.
