Maintain Your Profile
Practitioner’s Guide to Completing and Updating the Profile (pdf)
In 1997, the Florida Legislature passed a law requiring the Department of Health to maintain profiles on certain health professionals licensed in Florida. The law also specified the information to be maintained, how it was to be reported, and other requirements dealing with compiling and updating the information in the profiles. Chapter 456.042, Florida Statutes, requires practitioners to update profile information within 15 days after the final activity that renders such information a fact. You can review, confirm, or make changes the information that will be published in your practitioner profile.
The Department wants to ensure the information we publish is accurate. Accordingly, we ask that you review your profile for any changes, corrections, and/or omissions. We do not accept curriculum vitae or resumes in place of you providing specific information. Changes, excluding education and training, year began practicing, and liability claims, can be made to your profile electronically by logging into your account with your user ID and password at www.flhealthsource.gov. You may also submit changes by mail to:
