The NC Medical Society has serious concerns about this proposal, given the level of control and influence these physicians have on medical care delivery. A relaxed licensure standard is not appropriate under the circumstances. The NCMS will continue its dialogue with the NCMB on the issue to ensure our concerns are communicated.
On Tuesday, March 16, at 3 p.m., the NC Medical Board will be holding an open meeting to discuss this issue at the Board’s office in Raleigh. Anyone may attend or submit comments to the Board in writing. A copy of the proposal can be found here.
