Medical Staff Executive Committee Voting Privileges

The North Carolina Medical Society supports the ability of each medical staff to self-determine the composition of the medical executive committee, voting rights and structure to promote the highest quality patient care and well-being based on the unique needs of the facility and specific local circumstances.

The NCMS supports that a majority of voting power on medical staff executive committees should reside with licensed physicians on the active medical staff.
