The following data elements on the Board’s website should be considered as primary source verification:
1. License number
2. License status
3. Date the Georgia license was first issued
4. License expiration date
5. Public orders issued by the Georgia Composite Medical Board, including those issued under its former name (Composite State Board of Medical Examiners)
6. A notation that the Georgia Medical Board has issued no public orders against the licensee
7. Job descriptions and approved physician supervisors (for physician assistants)
The following data elements on the Board’s website should not be construed as primary source
1. Specialty board certification, as this is not a requirement for licensure in Georgia.
2. Specialty, because the Board licenses physicians to practice medicine and surgery, rather than to practice a specific specialty. (The Board may limit a licensee’s practice through a consent order.)
3. Practice address, because the Board regulates the practice of medicine through licensing the individual rather than the practice site.
4. Information listed in the physician profile, which is provided directly by the physician to the public, as required by the Patient Right to Know Act.
