 6  listed in section 106 of the administrative procedures act of 1969,

10  disciplinary subcommittee for further consideration.

23  examinations.

 

24        (5) A disciplinary subcommittee shall impose the sanction of

 6  intentional acts of fraud or deceit resulting in personal financial

 

 7  gain to the licensee or registrant and harm to the health of

 

 8  patients under the licensee's or registrant's care. This subsection

 

 9  does not apply if a disciplinary subcommittee finds that a licensee
