NCMS Policy Manual

A major role for the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) is working with its membership to set health policy as an organization and take public positions on these and other issues as they enter the policy-making arena.

The NCMS Policy Manual contains all of the NCMS’ current stances on a wide range health care issues. These policies are reviewed every five years in order to ensure a policy’s relevance and applicability. For questions regarding these policies, please contact Kristen Spaduzzi.
