Consumer Reports magazine and the Informed Patient Institute recently ranked NCMB’s website in the top 5 (out of 65 total) of all Medical Board websites across the U.S. Sites were ranked based on transparency, ease of finding information, and ease of use from the public’s perspective. The rankings were published in the May 2016 issue of Consumer Reports.

NCMB was also recognized for its efforts in transparency using social media. Consumer Reports wrote, "North Carolina in particular is an active user of social media and posts meeting minutes and other announcements on Facebook. Boards should explore using social media to reach people interested in their work and to inform the public about disciplinary actions taken and board operations.”
