TALLAHASSEE—The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine has launched an updated, interactive website to improve communication, enhance transparency and increase accessibility to web services. The website was redesigned to provide better customer service and encourage public feedback.
The website features a number of valuable resources for Osteopathic Physicians and consumers and also simplifies the process of applying for, renewing, or verifying a license, and provides information on how to file a complaint.
“On this enhanced site you will find important information for consumers, licensees and applicants. You can learn about the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and its activities, read summaries of Board actions, search for licensees by name or profession and more. To keep the public informed of the Board's activities, this site will be updated regularly and will post agendas, minutes, and licensee status,” said Board Chairman, Ronald Burns, DO.
The new site provides an opportunity for consumers to search for a physician or learn more about their current doctor by clicking on the Profile Link. Osteopathic physicians and those in the process of becoming licensed can also access online applications and learn more about their responsibilities.
The Board of Osteopathic Medicine’s website is the newest of twelve health care profession websites to be redesigned.
The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts.
