The state Board of Medical Examiners has reinstated the medical license of a Grand Forks psychiatrist accused of improperly prescribing medication to children.

Thomas M. Peterson’s license was reinstated on Wednesday. The board had restricted his license last month after he improperly prescribed anti-psychotic medication to two children.

The board says Peterson has since completed a course at Harvard on child and adolescent pharmacology. His license will remain on probation for three years.

The medical board also placed Lois Freisleben-Cook on probation for three years for improperly prescribing medication. The board ordered the Williston doctor to complete courses in pharmacology, ethics and record-keeping.
