“The NCMB has a vitally important job of regulating the practice of medicine. I encourage NCMS members to consider serving their profession by taking a leadership role with the Medical Board,” said NCMS President Robert Monteiro, MD.
Candidates must have an active North Carolina medical license or, if applying for the PA/NP seat, an active physician assistant or nurse practitioner license. Candidates must be practicing at least part-time and have no history of public discipline for the past 10 years. Candidates should be aware that serving on the NCMB requires a significant commitment of time and those who are interested should possess both the ability and willingness to dedicate this level of service to the people of North Carolina, as well as the medical profession.
The process, established by North Carolina General Statutes 90-2 and 90-3, requires anyone interested to apply through the Review Panel, which screens applicants, conducts interviews, and makes recommendations to the Governor, who then makes appointments to the Medical Board. The application is available at: http://www.ncmedboardreviewpanel.com/ and is due by July 2, 2012. The Review Panel will interview all qualified applicants in Raleigh on August 25, 2012.
