Electronic Licensing


The Florida Department of Health’s Division of Medical Quality Assurance (MQA) is pleased to announce a new licensing experience for health care practitioners. Beginning mid-2023, electronic licenses (e-license) will replace the current practice of printing and mailing paper-based licenses. For each profession regulated by MQA, the transition to paperless licensing means seamlessly retrieving licenses through the MQA Online Services Portal within two business days of an approved application.

The electronic process will allow practitioners to obtain newly issued or newly renewed licenses free of charge and 7 to 10 days earlier than previously mailed versions. The e-licenses include QR codes that increase the information security of licenses and enables users, such as employers and consumers,  to access and verify credentials of health care practitioners.

The e-license can be retrieved under the “Additional Activities” section on your dashboard.

  • Look for “License Documents” on the menu options.

  • Click on the drop-down arrow under “Choose A License” to choose your profession.

  • Next, click the blue “Select” button to continue.

  • On the next page your license number will appear.

  • Please click directly on the word “Licensure” next to the blue arrow. The “Active e-License” link will appear.

  • Click on this link to view your license document.

Combining the growing health care workforce and use of mobile devices, it is critical that MQA continues to develop innovative strategies to meet the needs of practitioners and streamline access to key documents that provide credibility to entering the workforce. e-Licensing demonstrates the commitment of the Department to expedite licensure and verification processes so that health care practitioners can get to work quickly and continue working through successful licensure renewal cycles without interruption.

Licensed health care practitioners are encouraged to visit the MQA Online Services Portal to ensure contact information is updated and accurately displayed within their account.
