“For the Protection of the Health, Safety and Welfare of the Public.”
The Board of Licensure in Medicine is the state agency responsible for protecting the health and safety of the public by determining who may be licensed for medical practice in this state and by regulating the medical practice of those licensees.
The members of the Board are appointed by the Governor. The Board is composed of both physician and non-physician representatives of the public. All members must have been Maine residents for at least five years at the time of their appointment and the physician members must have been licensed and actively practicing medicine in the state.
The Board employs its own administrative and investigative staff and is provided with the legal and investigative staff by the Maine Department of Attorney General.
