Dr. Enrique Ginzburg Named Chair of Florida Board of Medicine
Enrique Ginzburg, M.D., professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Surgery and Trauma Medical Director at Jackson South Community Hospital, has been named Chair of the Florida Board of Medicine for 2017.
Ginzburg was appointed to the board by Florida Governor Rick Scott in 2013. He served as Vice Chair in 2016, and was a member of the rules and legislative, surgical care and credentials committees.
“I foresee an interesting year ahead, with two of the main topics being the new medical marijuana legislation and evaluation of wrong-site surgery data,” Ginzburg said. “It is a great privilege and opportunity as a member of the University of Miami faculty to serve as Chair of the Florida Board of Medicine as one of the few university-based academic physicians. As physicians at an academic medical center, my colleagues and I are able to serve on boards and impact our profession in a way that we couldn’t achieve in private practice. This is one of the big benefits of working at this institution.”
The Florida Board of Medicine plays a leading role in keeping the citizens of Florida safe in the ever-changing health care environment through dialogue with the public, the legislature, academia and the medical community.
