Department of Health Professions
Online Professional Information Service

The Department of Health Professions has partnered with VI to offer this online Public Information Database. This service allows users to access name and address of licensees within each Board. Please notice that no phone numbers or email addresses are provided, due to security issues. There are two options for accessing the Public Information Database.

Option 1: Access as a subscriber (Instruction)

Entities may choose to become VI Premium Service Subscribers. Subscribers pay an annual $95 subscription fee. Subscribers will be issued a unique login ID and password that allows them to access a web site where they may search and easily download chosen information. Subscribers may sort the data by occupation, last name and/or location. This information can be placed into an office database that will allow subscribers to create mailing labels, envelopes, and/or letterhead without having to reenter the data. Subscribers may select their preferred option for monthly billing of these services.
