Whether or not you get a pardon from the governor of the state you reside in, the President of the United States or get your felony conviction expunged and the effect upon whether such will allow you to work in your state's medical field depends upon what license restrictions for such a conviction may have for you from the administrative agency governing the issuance of any such professional license that may be required and what any potential employer may think of finding out such information on any background check of you.

I suggest that you consult with any medical school first of you are seeking to become a doctor and consult with a business attorney as well on the subject you are writing about in that your question as worded is pretty broad making it hard to give a specific answer.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
