The NCMS has the opportunity to appoint 2 members to the NC Professionals Health Program (NCPHP) Board of Directors. Learn more about responsibilities of NCPHP Board members.

Since 1988, NCPHP has been dedicated to helping medical professionals experience a lifetime of change and return to health. NCPHP assists with recovery from substance use disorders and other conditions that could impair a clinician’s ability to safely provide care and services to their patients.

NCPHP originated as a physicians’ health committee of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS). In 1988, it was established as a formal program of the NCMS and written into the North Carolina General Statutes. To learn more about the important work of this organization, visit the NCPHP website.

Physicians interested in an NCPHP Board position should complete the application form and return it to Evan Simmons, [email protected] by Monday, July 15. Interviews for the board openings will take place virtually at 6PM on Wednesday, August 14.
