State Medical Board of Ohio
Confidential Monitoring Program

Doctor and Patient

The State Medical Board of Ohio (SMBO) developed a confidential monitoring program for all licensees and applicants. This program is a confidential path for individuals to seek help for burnout, mental health, substance use disorders, or other medical conditions. The confidential monitoring program is a therapeutic alternative to regulatory awareness. The SMBO has partnered with OhioPHP to administer this program.

New changes will go into effect October 2023
