A New Licensure Experience for Health Care Practitioners

Posted in Latest News on June 22, 2023.

The Florida Department of Health’s Division of Medical Quality Assurance (MQA) is pleased to announce a new licensing experience for health care practitioners. Beginning mid-2023, electronic licenses (e-license) will replace the current practice of printing and mailing paper-based licenses.

Combining the growing health care workforce and use of mobile devices, it is critical that MQA continues to develop innovative strategies to meet the needs of practitioners and streamline access to key documents that provide credibility to entering the workforce. e-Licensing demonstrates the commitment of the Department to expedite licensure and verification processes so that health care practitioners can get to work quickly and continue working through successful licensure renewal cycles without interruption.
