The statutory authority (law) that establishes the Georgia Composite Medical Board, the Medical Practice Act, and the Patient Right to Know Act may be found in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, Title 43, Chapters 34 and 34A (O.C.G.A. §§43-34 and 34A). You may access the full text of these code sections by choosing the attached PDF document, which is searchable by keyword, page number or section.

The official Administrative Rules are published separately from the law and further clarify the regulation of the professions licensed by the Georgia Composite Medical Board. You may access the Board Rules at the link titled RULES AND LAWS on our home page and following the link to "Rules."

[Please note: Board Rules are currently being re-written to comply with changes to the Medical Practice Act that were passed by the Georgia Legislature in 2009 and will be updated on the website as changes to the rules are passed.]
