Licensing program overview
NCMB licenses and regulates physicians (MDs and DOs, as well as resident training licensees or RTLs), physician assistants (PAs), licensed perfusionists (LPs) and anesthesiology assistants (AAs). In addition, the Board registers polysomnographic technologists or “sleep techs,” which are currently not licensed professionals in North Carolina.
NCMB also certifies and registers professional corporations (PCs) and limited liability companies (LLCs) through its licensure program.
Criminal Convictions - Please Be Aware
1. NCMB requires applicants for licensure to submit to a criminal background check as part of the licensure process.
2. NCMB will review all relevant information when processing a license application and making a determination on licensure. As part ofits review, NCMB considers criminal convictions. When considering criminal convictions, the NCMB shall consider all the factors listed in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 93B-8.1(b1). Review the factors listed in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 93B-8.1(b1) here.
3. If NCMB denies an application in whole or in part because of a criminal conviction or otherwise, there is an appeals process that the applicant can pursue through N.C. Gen. Stat § 90-14.1. Review the appeals process in N.C. Gen. Stat § 90-14.1 here.
