International Medical Graduates Section
In November 1999, the NCMS House of Delegates voted unanimously to establish an International Medical Graduates (IMG) Section. Previously, a task force found that many IMG physicians in North Carolina felt that they have specific needs that can be addressed effectively in the forum of organized medicine. The IMG Section held their inaugural business meeting January 15, 2000, at NCMS headquarters. Shirish Devasthali, MD, was elected first chair of the Section.
The IMG Section is currently staffed by Will Barnett, 1-800-722-1350 ext. 130.
