There is currently a position open on the Council on Naturopathic Physicians Formulary (Council).  This position requires an advanced degree in medical or pharmaceutical science.
The Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine (Board) is responsible for overseeing the practice of naturopathic medicine in Oregon. As part of this regulatory authority the Naturopathic Formulary was created to determine a formulary compendium from which naturopathic physicians can prescribe for their patients. This Council was established by Oregon Revised Statute 685.145.  It meets twice a year, in March and September, and consists of seven members.
The composition of the Board is as follows: one naturopathic physician who is member of the Board, and one naturopathic physician not serving on the Board, two pharmacists licensed by the State Board of Pharmacy; one physician licensed by the Oregon Medical Board; and two members that hold an advanced degree in medical or pharmaceutical science.
It is important to fill this position to give balance to the Council in determining what substances should be added to the compendium, as well as addressing other issues related to prescribing practices and regulations in the State of Oregon.
Please forward this message to members of your professional organizations and/or networks.  Please also provide my contact information to qualified/interested candidates that would like to discuss the position with me directly.
To apply, please send a letter of interest and a resume / CV to the Board office via email, fax or U.S. mail, to my attention, by March 2, 2018 at 4pm.  Current Council members will review the materials received and make an appointment decision at the March 14, 2018, bi-annual Council meeting.   The Board will contact all applicants with the Council’s decision by March 30. 
I appreciate your assistance.  Please do not hesitate to contact the Board office with any comments or questions.
Best Regards,
Mary-Beth Baptista
