Organizational Structure of the Board

The Department of Health's Division of Medical Quality Assurance serves as the principle administrative support unit for the board. The board is supported by a full-time professional staff based in Tallahassee, and its regulatory functions are funded in full by fees paid by its licensees. Board members are appointed by the Governor and subject to confirmation by the Senate. Members of the board can serve two four-year terms. Despite the expiration of a term, board members can continue to serve until they have been either replaced or reappointed. To learn more about becoming a member of the board, visit the Governor’s Appointment Office website or email their office at appointments@eog.myflorida.com.
