Physician seats available

Applicants are needed for three physician seats on the Board. All three of the positions for which applicants are sought currently are held by Board Members who are eligible for reappointment; however, these Board Members must apply for reappointment. All three seats must be filled by the process set down in statute (N.C. Gen. Stat. 90-2 and 90-3), which requires interested parties to apply via the Review Panel. The Review Panel is an independent body that nominates candidates for consideration by the Governor. By law, the Review Panel must nominate two candidates for each open seat. Applications are due July 1.

The Review Panel will consider only physicians (MDs or DOs) who hold active, unrestricted NC medical licenses. Applicants must be actively practicing clinical medicine at least part time and must have no history of disciplinary action within the past five years. The Review Panel will interview all qualified applicants in Raleigh on Saturday, August 6.

Applications to the Review Panel must be submitted online. Visit the Review Panel's website to review the process and access the online application. For more information, contact Jerel Noel, the Review Panel Administrator, at (919) 863-9485.

Public member seat available

One Board seat is available for a member of the public, to be directly appointed by the Governor. The public member position is open to anyone except a licensed health care professional, or the spouse of one. Submit applications through the Governor's Office of Boards and Commissions.
