General Information

  • At least one (1) of the forty (40) hours must concern the topic of Risk Management.
  • At least one (1) of the forty (40) hours must be on the subject of Laws and Rules.
  • At least two (2) of the forty (40) hours must be on the subject of prevention of Medical Errors.
  • While not required, licensees may complete up to three (3) hours of continuing education per biennium in the area of Practice Management.
  • The remainder of the hours can be made up of Scientific hours.

Important Reminders

  • To ensure you receive your license renewal notification from the Florida Department of Health, your current mailing address must be on file.
  • Failure to renew an active or inactive license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status.
  • Failure by a delinquent licensee to renew before the expiration of the current licensure cycle renders the license null and void without any further action by the board or the department.
