DEPARTMENT REGULATED PROFESSIONS
Welcome to the Division of Medical Quality Assurance online service portal. The portal was established to provide healthcare practitioners 24 hours a day access to the division's licensing services, including the ability to apply for a license or permit online, check the status of your application, and manage your licensure record. You can also search for approved counterfeit-proof prescription pad vendors and request certification of your Florida license.
The Division of Medical Quality Assurance online service portal provides direct access to the division's online License Verification tool, which allows users to search the Division's database by licensee name or license number. You may also search disciplinary actions, view practitioner profiles, request public records, download data, file a complaint or report unlicensed activity.
The information contained in the Public Data Portal link is for organizations or individuals who want to obtain general license information about multiple practitioners under specific board regulation.
The Department of Health, Division of Medical Quality Assurance, will now review your continuing education records in the electronic tracking system at the time of renewal. It will happen automatically when you renew your license, but it is important that you understand how this simple change will affect the way you renew your license in the future. If the practitioner’s continuing education records are complete, they will be able to renew their license without interruption. If the practitioner’s continuing education records are not complete, they will be prompted to enter their remaining continuing education hours before proceeding with their license renewal.
Applicants who submit an initial licensure application to the department for a profession that requires background screening pursuant to s. 456.0135, Florida Statutes, must submit fingerprints electronically through a service provider approved by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and who is photo capable and is in compliance with the requirements of Florida's Care Provider Background Screening Clearinghouse pursuant to s. 435.04(1)(e), Florida Statutes.
The purpose of the clearinghouse is to provide a single data source for background screening results of persons required to be screened by law for employment in positions that provide services to children, the elderly, and disabled individuals. The clearinghouse allows the results of criminal history checks to be shared among specified agencies when a person has applied to volunteer, be employed, be licensed, or enter into a contract that requires a state and national fingerprint-based criminal history check. (s. 435.12, Florida Statutes)
