Serve on the North Carolina Medical Board

Three physician members of the North Carolina Medical Board will complete their second and final terms this year. The independent panel that nominates candidates for the Board will soon be seeking candidates to fill these seats, for terms beginning Nov. 1.

Candidates must have an active North Carolina medical license and must be practicing clinical medicine at least part time. Candidates must have no history of public discipline for the past 10 years. Candidates should also be aware that serving on the Board requires a significant commitment of time and possess both the ability and willingness to dedicate this level of service to people of North Carolina, as well as the medical profession.

The process established by state law (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 90-2 and 90-3) requires anyone interested in serving on the Board to apply though the Review Panel for the North Carolina Medical Board. This body screens applicants, conducts interviews, and makes recommendations to the Governor, who then makes appointments to the Board. The application will be available on the Review Panel’s website by mid-February and will be due in July. The Review Panel will interview all qualified applicants in Raleigh in late August.
