Board to explore issues facing employed physicians

NCMB will host a roundtable discussion in November to explore challenges specific to physicians who work in salaried positions, as opposed to independent solo or group practice.

As more physicians have moved to employment arrangements, NCMB has noticed that policies and protocols put in place by employers sometimes make it challenging for the employed licensee to comply with individual professional obligations to patients. For example, when a physician retires or departs a practice, the Board’s expectation is that the physician will be permitted to provide appropriate notice to patients, ensure continuity of care, and allow patient selection.

The roundtable is tentatively scheduled for the afternoon of Tuesday Nov. 15. Do you have suggestions for issues related to employed physicians that should be discussed at this event? Send them to
