Is there a difference between the Georgia Medical Board and the Georgia Composite Medical Board?

No, the Georgia Composite Medical Board, our official name by state law, is also known as the "Georgia Medical Board" or even just the "Medical Board." There is only one agency that issues medical licenses. We are known as a "composite" medical board because we are also mandated by the Georgia General Assembly to regulate physician assistants, respiratory care professionals, acupuncturists, perfusionists, orthotists, prosthetists and auricular (ear) detoxification specialists as well as physicians.
