The Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners is pleased to once again be able to offer on-line access to records, information, and forms.
The Board recognizes how important it is to everyone to have reliable information about the doctors who care for them and their families, and how important it is for doctors to have timely access to the Board on practice issues. Over the next months, the Board will publish information about the osteopathic physicians licensed by the Board, and about the Board’s role and actions in regulating the doctors.
To begin, we are publishing the documents, information, and forms that are most often requested: the Board’s statutes, rules, and guidelines; the minutes of Board meetings, application packets, complaint forms, and license verifications and disciplinary histories. Over the coming months we look forward to expanding the information published and making the Board’s website a convenient source of timely and reliable information for all those involved in the osteopathic medical community.
About the Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners
The AZ Board of Osteopathic Examiners licenses and regulates over 1,800 doctors of osteopathic medicine (D.O.). In addition, the Board regulates over 200 osteopathic interns and residents receiving post-graduate training in Arizona hospitals and clinics.
The mission of the Board is to protect the public by setting educational and training standards for licensure, and by reviewing complaints made against osteopathic physicians, interns, and residents to ensure that their conduct meets the standards of the profession, as defined in law (A.R.S. § 32-1854).
The Board is made up of five osteopathic doctors and two members of the public who do not have financial ties to the osteopathic profession. The Governor appoints each member to a five-year term. Each member may serve a second consecutive five-year term, if re-appointed. The Board elects its officers each January.
The Board meets eight times a year, and by telephone conference call if needed between meetings. The Board hires an Executive Director who is responsible for administering agency according to State law.
