North Dakota Board of Medicine to hold annual meeting at SMHS on Oct. 21

The North Dakota Board of Medicine’s (NDBOM) annual meeting will be held in Room W206 of the SMHS at 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 21. Students, faculty, staff, and the public are welcome to attend this public event and light refreshments will be available.

Established in 1890, the NDBOM holds meetings quarterly to discuss multiple aspects of the licensing of physicians, physician assistants, and genetic counselors in North Dakota. The Board consists of 10 physicians, one physician assistant, and two public members appointed by the Governor to four-year terms. Board members are assigned to one of two panels that review complaints against licensees, taking disciplinary action if necessary.

The Board is supported by a full-time professional staff located in Bismarck. Although the Board is part of state government, it receives no tax dollars and is funded solely by license fees.
