The Florida Board of Medicine plays a leading role in the ever-changing health care environment through dialogue with the public, the legislature, academia and the medical community.
The Board consists of fifteen members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. Twelve members of the Board must be licensed physicians in good standing in this state who are residents of the state and who have been engaged in the active practice or teaching of medicine for at least four years immediately preceding their appointment. One of the physicians must be in private practice and on the full-time staff of a teaching hospital in this state and one must be a graduate from a foreign medical school. The remaining three members must be residents of the state who are not, and never have been, licensed as a health care practitioner. One member of the Board must be a licensed health care risk manager and at least one member of the Board must be 60 years of age or older.
