The October episode of NCMB's podcast, MedBoard Matters, takes an up close look at how the medical board determines whether medical care is consistent with current and accepted standards of care when it receives a compliant about a licensee.

The answer, in any case where regulatory action is contemplated, is to seek the opinion of an outside expert medical reviewer who is familiar with standards of care in North Carolina. But recently, NCMB has had an increasingly difficult time finding enough experts to weigh in on cases that need review.

Listen to the episode to learn how NCMB uses outside reviewers, why they are so critical to the Board's regulatory work and how you can offer your services to review quality of care cases in.
