about the board
The Medical Board is comprised of twelve members: nine physicians and three non-physician public members. All of the Board members are appointed by the Governor and serve five-year terms. Board members may be reappointed. Appointees' terms are staggered to provide continuity. Two members serve as the Board's Secretary and Supervising Member who are responsible for overseeing the Board's investigatory and enforcement processes. The Secretary is a physician member and a consumer member has served as Supervising Member since July 1993.
The agency supports eighty-one full time positions. The Executive Director, who is an attorney, oversees day-to-day operations. The Medical Board receives no monies from the state's general revenue fund. Licensure application and renewal fees are the primary source of funding for Board operations.
