Wellness/Professional Health Program Information

On November 1, 2012, the Georgia Composite Medical Board commended the Georgia Professional Health Program (Georgia PHP) for its ongoing efforts in implementing the state’s new program to help physicians and other health care professionals who develop addictive disorders.

The primary goal of the PHP is to ensure that the professionals who return to the practice of medicine do so only if they can practice with reasonable skill and safety. Although its partnership with the Medical Board began less than six months ago, the program has already begun its monitoring and treatment mission with licensees.
