The Department of Health is currently accepting applications
to fill vacancies on the Medical Quality Assurance Commission (MQAC). Says DoH,
“We are looking for people willing to study the issues and make decisions in
the best interest of the public.”
The openings below are based on the final redistricting plan
approved by the Washington State Redistricting Commission on January 1, 2012:
• One physician representing Congressional District 2
• One physician representing Congressional District 6
• One physician representing Congressional District 7
• One physician representing Congressional District 8
• One physician at-large
The commission consists of 21 members appointed by the
governor. It meets about eight times a year, usually on Thursday and Friday
every six weeks. There is an expectation to review multiple disciplinary cases
between meetings, and additional meetings or hearings are often necessary.
Additional information on the commission, along with a link
to the governor’s application, is available on the commission’s website
at http://www.doh.wa.gov/hsqa/MQAC/members.htm. Applications, along with a
current resume must be received by April 20.
