Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeanie K. Vaudt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (7 pages)

            Dr. Mark B. Irland appeals the dismissal of his petition for judicial review regarding a confidential clinical competency evaluation ordered by the Iowa Board of Medicine (the “Board”).  OPINION HOLDS: Because Dr. Irland has not overcome the doctrine of exhaustion of administrative remedies or satisfied the requirements for immediate judicial review, there is no jurisdiction for judicial review at this time.  We affirm the district court's order granting the Board’s motion to dismiss.
