Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners in Medicine and Surgery
Mission: 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.
September 29, 2023 - The US DOJ FY2024 Contingency Plan outlines that the FBI and Criminal Justice Information Services Divison, Records Management Division, and National Instant Criminal Background Check System will be largely exempt from federal furlough requirements and will remain operational albeit at a diminished capacity in the event of a lapse of federal funding.
We do believe that our background checks will continue, just at a slower pace. Please allow for additional time for licensing staff to receive your background check from the Arizona Dept. of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time.
