As part of the Florida CARES assessment, physicians will be given a detailed description of their deficiencies as well as a detailed remedial education program. Remediation “prescriptions” may include:

  1. Specific Continuing Medical Education (CME) recommendations.
  2. Recommendations for supervision of practice ranging from chart review to direct supervision.
  3. Experiential learning consisting of mini-fellowships or residency training.
  4. Psychiatric/psychological treatment for an identified mental illness such as depression/anxiety or substance abuse.

Upon completion of the remediation, Florida CARES can provide a focused evaluation to determine whether the physician’s skills in the deficient area are currently at the accepted standard of care.
