The FSMB Annual Meeting is the premier educational forum offered to the medical regulatory community, brings together more than 500 physicians and public representatives from state medical and osteopathic boards and members of their staffs, influential federal and state government representatives, and leaders of national medical organizations. The Annual Meeting is comprised of an intensive three-day program that brings together national experts in the field of medical licensure and discipline to discuss a wide range of subjects relevant to medical regulators.

After attending the FSMB Annual Meeting, participants will be able to:

  • identify and discuss dynamics that may influence how medical and osteopathic boards will regulate physicians in the future;
  • describe strategies being used by medical and osteopathic boards to protect the public; and
  • investigate options for improving state medical and osteopathic board performance and effectiveness in protecting the public.
