About this Journal
The Journal of Medical Regulation is a peer-reviewed, editorially independent journal published by the Federation of State Medical Boards since 1913. JMR’s scholarly content examines interdisciplinary trends and topics of interest to the international community of medical regulators who protect the public’s health and safety through the licensing and disciplining of physicians and other health care professionals. By publishing evidence-based scholarship, JMR helps foster an environment in which the link between regulatory policies and health and social outcomes is better understood, and new knowledge is created upon which to base regulatory decisions.
