State Medical Boards
State Medical Boards license physicians, investigate complaints, discipline those who violate their state Medical Practice Act, conduct physician evaluations and recommend rehabilitation of physicians, if indicated. By following up on complaints from the public, medical boards are designed to be a means to enforce basic standards of competence and ethical behavior in physicians.
