It supports its member boards as they fulfill their mandate of protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare through the proper licensing, disciplining, and regulation of physicians and, in most jurisdictions, other health care professionals.
The FSMB is an innovative leader, helping state medical boards shape the future of medical regulation by protecting the public and promoting quality health care.

Examples include curbing opioid prescription abuse, encouraging public membership on medical boards, promoting faster and more efficient licensing of physicians, and most recently, raising awareness of the mental and physical health issues that can impact physician performance.
