NCMS Committees

Much of the work of the North Carolina Medical Society is accomplished through its committees. NCMS committees discuss and recommend official policies and actions for adoption by the Society’s House of Delegates. The committees meet two to three times a year.
In addition to the professional satisfaction that results from participating in committee work, many NCMS members enjoy the excellent opportunity committees give them to become acquainted with and work with colleagues throughout the state.
