Schipske Elected Secretary of the California Medical Board

Today at its quarterly meeting in Sacramento, I was elected by the other members of the California Medical Board to serve as Secretary of the Board, and as a member of the executive committee.

The California Medical Board is the state regulatory agency charged with the licensing and disciplining of physicians.

Members are appointed by the Governor, the Senate Rules Committee and the Speaker of the Assembly.

I have served since 2007 and am so honored that my colleagues unanimously supported my election.

Additionally, I have been appointed as Chair of the Access to Care Committee and the Application Review Committee. I serve on a hearing panel, the Enforcement Committee, the Education Committee and the Advisory Committee on Physician Responsibility in Supervision of Affiliated Health Care Professionals.

I am the first and only registered nurse practitioner to serve on a state medical board.
