The North Carolina Medical Board established a new CME requirement last year that applies to physicians and physician assistants who prescribe controlled substances of any kind starting July 1, 2017. Read about the NCMB’s requirement. Get a jump on fulfilling this new CME requirement by attending the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) and the Pitt County Medical Society’s FREE opioid prescribing session in Greenville at the Holiday Inn Greenville on Saturday afternoon March 18 from 2-4 p.m. Learn more about the CME and register.
And please consider joining the NCMS and Pitt County Medical Society on Friday evening, March 17 for the March Madness Mixer from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Greenville. If you live in the Greenville area, here’s your chance to chat with your NCMS Board of Directors and catch a March Madness basketball game with your colleagues. The reception is free and spouses are welcome. Register here.
The NCMS Board of Directors holds its meetings every other month in locations throughout the state.

Please note when the Board will be in your area:

  • March 17-18: Greenville
  • May 19-20: Chapel Hill
  • July 21-22: Boone
  • September 14-17: M3 Conference in Raleigh
