The independent panel that nominates candidates for the North Carolina Medical Board is seeking candidates to fill Board seats that will come open in November 2012. Candidates are needed for three physician Board positions and one Board seat for a physician assistant or nurse practitioner. One incumbent Medical Board physician member is eligible for reappointment, but that person must apply through the general application process.

Candidates must have an active North Carolina medical license or, if applying for the PA/NP seat, an active physician assistant or nurse practitioner license. Candidates must be practicing at least part time and have no history of public discipline for the past 10 years. Candidates should be aware that serving on the NC Medical Board requires a significant commitment of time and possess both the ability and willingness to dedicate this level of service to people of North Carolina, as well as the medical profession.

The process established by statute (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 90-2 and 90-3) requires anyone interested to apply though the Review Panel for the North Carolina Medical Board. This body screens applicants, conducts interviews, and makes recommendations to the Governor, who then makes appointments to the Medical Board. The application is available online and is due by July 2. The Review Panel will interview all qualified applicants in Raleigh on August 25.

For more information, call Dave Feild, the administrator for the Review Panel, at (919) 414-4259.
