Physician applicants needed for three NCMB seats

Comments:   comments  Print Friendly Version  |   Share this item
Applicants are needed for three physician seats on the North Carolina Medical Board for terms beginning Nov. 1.

All positions 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 for the North Carolina Medical Board. The Review Panel is an independent body that nominates candidates for consideration by Gov. Roy Cooper. By law, the Review Panel must nominate two candidates for each open seat.

Additionally, one of the open seats must be filled by a physician who is a member of the Old North State Medical Society. Applications from ONSMS members are urgently needed to fulfill the statutory Board composition criteria.

One of the available seats is currently occupied by a physician who is eligible for reappointment. However, this physician must apply for reappointment via the normal application process.

Applications will be accepted online and are due no later than Thursday, June 29 at 4:45 p.m. For more information or to submit an application, visit this website.

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.
