Licensee survey: here’s what you told us

In October, NCMB sent emails to 10,000 randomly selected licensees requesting their input on topics impacting the practice of medicine, including physician wellness/burnout, longevity in practice, and issues facing employed physicians versus those in private practice. We also shared the survey with several groups to distribute to their members, including NC Medical Society, NC Osteopathic Medical Association, NC Academy of Physician Assistants, and the Old North State Medical Society.

NCMB staff will be working over the next few months to see what else can be gleaned from the data and to determine how representative the information is for physicians and PAs in North Carolina. The Board is grateful to the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and to the NC Physicians Health Program, which have both offered assistance in further analyzing the information. Thank you to all physicians and PAs who participated in the survey! If you have any questions or comments, send them to
