A state panel next week will consider whether to approve a Florida Medical Association course on human trafficking as a continuing-education requirement for doctors.
The Board of Medicine Rules and Legislative Committee will consider the FMA’s request for course approval when the panel meets in Coral Gables.
The Legislature this year passed a human trafficking bill, which, among other things, requires physicians to take one continuing-education credit in issues related to human trafficking.
