Year in review: A look back at data from 2012

It’s that time again: Year in Review time. This feature highlights a selection of Board data in a two-page graphic spread that, we hope, illustrates some interesting facts about the NCMB’s work and licensee population.

Back by request (really, we get frequent inquiries) is the Physician Population by County table. This data is also available for Physician Assistants (our space is limited here, so it is not published—look for it online in the Data Center). PAs are currently the NCMB’s fastest growing licensee group. Notable: PAs account for 11.5 percent of the total licensee population in 2012 but made up more than 14 percent of licenses issued for the year.

And, for the first time, we took a look at fines issued by the NCMB in 2012. Fines are a relatively recent addition to the range of tools used by the Board to address disciplinary and administrative matters. Good to know: the NCMB does not benefit financially from the issuance of fines. All funds go to the NC Department of Education.
