The 2011 Iowa Board of Medicine (IBM) Annual Report is now available. IBM is an executive branch agency charged with the licensing and regulation of physicians (practitioners with a doctor of medicine degree or a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree) and acupuncturists. The ten-member Board is composed of seven physicians (five MDs and two DOs) and three non-physicians who represent the public.
Members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by a two-thirds majority vote in the Iowa Senate for a full three-year term or to complete the unexpired term of a member who resigned. More information about the Board's work is available in the agendas, minutes, reports and press releases posted on the website. The Board also has a page on Facebook.
