           All examinations shall be written in the English language, and, except as otherwise provided in the exemptions contained in this chapter (45:9-1, et seq.), the questions shall be such as can be answered in common by all schools of practice. The examinations shall be in the following subjects: Pharmacology and therapeutics; obstetrics and gynecology; diagnosis, including diseases of the skin, nose and throat; surgery, including surgical anatomy and diseases of the eye, ear and genito-urinary organs; anatomy; physiology; chemistry; histology; pathology; bacteriology; hygiene; medical jurisprudence; and such other subjects as the board may decide. If any applicant has completed a course of four full school years of study in and has been regularly graduated from a school of homeopathy or eclecticism, the member or members of the board of those schools, respectively, shall examine such applicant in the pharmacology and therapeutics of the school from which such applicant has been so graduated. All examinations shall be both scientific and practical, and of sufficient severity to test the candidate's fitness to practice medicine and surgery. If the examination is satisfactory, the board shall issue a license entitling the applicant to practice medicine and/or surgery in this State. Said application and examination papers shall be retained in the files of the board for a period of five years, and shall be prima facie evidence of all matters therein contained. All licenses shall be signed by the president and secretary of the board and attested by the seal thereof. All licenses granted under the exemptions contained in this chapter (45:9-1, et seq.) shall bear indication of the school of practice in which the licensee is limited by virtue of said license to practice.
