EMS ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Oregon Medical Board (Board) and its EMS Advisory Committee (Committee) are seeking letters of interest and curricula vitae (CV) from emergency medical services providers interested in serving on the Committee.
The emergency medical services provider must have two years of Oregon residency and be licensed for not less than two years. Per diem is reimbursed for time and expense, per contract.
The Committee is composed of two physician members, three EMS members, and one public member. The term of office is three years, and members may serve no more than two terms. The Committee meets four times a year with additional meetings or conference calls if necessary.
The Committee's purpose and major objective is to help ensure the availability of safe, professional medical services to the people of Oregon. The Committee makes recommendations to the Board on matters of scope of practice for all levels of emergency medical services providers and requirements and duties of supervising physicians. The Board then contemplates final action based upon those recommendations.
Interested applicants may submit a CV and a letter of interest addressing the following areas:
- Educational/training/practice experience
- Any committee or team experience
- Why you are interested in serving as a member on the EMS Advisory Committee
Application materials must be submitted to the Board at 1500 S.W. First Ave., Suite 620, Portland, OR 97201 or firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2021.
The Committee will interview interested applicants during its meeting on February 19, 2021, and forward recommendations for a new member to the Board. The Board will appoint the new member to the Committee at its regular meeting.
