NOMINATIONS TO THE MARYLAND STATE BOARD OF PODIATRIC MEDICAL EXAMINERS
Nominations may be made in writing to the MPMA office prior to the meeting or from the floor at the meeting. A nominee need not be a member of MPMA. The law requires that MPMA submit to DHMH two (2) names for each Board member vacancy. The Governor makes the final decision on the appointment to the Board.
The applicable law (Health General Article, Section 16-202) provides that a nominee must meet the following qualifications:
“Each podiatrist member of the Board shall be:
(1) A licensed practicing podiatrist of recognized ability and integrity;
(2) A resident of this State who has practiced actively in this State for at least 5 years immediately before appointment; and
(3) A licensed podiatrist with peer review experience.”
The nominations/election will be held at the MPMA meeting on January 15, 2014 at approximately 7:30 PM, at the Sheraton Columbia Hotel, Wincopin Circle, Columbia, MD, and all nominees and persons wanting to nominate a candidate are welcome to attend for the election.
