NCMS Sections

International Medical Graduates Section

Background

In November 1999, the NCMS House of Delegates voted unanimously to establish an International Medical Graduates (IMG) Section. Previously, a task force found that many IMG physicians in North Carolina felt that they have specific needs that can be addressed effectively in the forum of organized medicine. The IMG Section held their inaugural business meeting January 15, 2000, at NCMS headquarters. Shirish Devasthali, MD, was elected first chair of the Section.

Current Leadership

Shiva Rao, MD — Section Chair
