Greetings to applicants
Thank you for your application for licensure. The Credentials Committee of the Florida Board of Medicine is entrusted with ensuring that all applicants for licensure meet the requirements established by the Florida Legislature. In 2008, the Credentials Committee will be meeting in conjunction with the full Board of Medicine meetings. In order for the Committee members to review all the information that is provided for this committee, other committee meetings at the time, and for the full board meeting, a deadline for applications must be established and respected. With that in mind, the cut off for a complete application to be considered at the next scheduled Credentials Committee meeting is six (6) weeks prior to the committee meeting. This deadline will allow time to submit the paper documents to the vendor to be imaged on CDs and then sent to the members for review. Board staff have been instructed not to submit applications after that deadline.
All Board and Committee meetings dates are posted on our web site at: http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/medical/
It is our vision to be the nations leader in quality healthcare regulation; therefore, be assured that we are focused on improving the services we provide to our applicants, it is our goal to make the licensure process positive for all.
