The independent panel that nominates candidates for certain seats on the North Carolina Medical Board is seeking applications for three positions that will come open this year.
Two physician seats on the Board will be vacated by Dr. George L. Saunders and Dr. Janelle A. Rhyne, who each complete their second consecutive terms on Oct. 31. Under state law, Saunders and Rhyne are ineligible for reappointment.

A third seat on the Board, to be filled by a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, will come open when Peggy Robinson, PA-C, completes her first three-year term on the Board, also on Oct. 31. Robinson is eligible for reappointment. However, state law allows other licensed PAs or NPs to apply.

The nominating panel must recommend at least two candidates for each open seat to Gov. Beverly Perdue, who will make the final selection. Applicants have to meet certain requirements including holding an active, unrestricted North Carolina license. Applications are due July 1.
