Laws

Official Code of Georgia Annotated, Title 43, Chapters 34 and 34A (O.C.G.A. §§43-34 and 34A) is the statutory authority (law) that establishes the Georgia Composite Medical Board, the Medical Practice Act, and the Patient Right to Know Act (Physician Profile). You may access the full text of the Georgia OCGA at site here.

The official Administrative Rules are published separately from the law and further clarify the regulations form the OCGA and are specific to the professions licensed by the Georgia Composite Medical Board. You may access the Board Rules by clicking here.

[Please note: Board Rules are currently being re-written to comply with changes to the Medical Practice Act that were passed by the Georgia General Assembly during the most recent legislative session and will be updated on the website as changes to the rules are passed.]
