The Maryland Board of Physicians is the agency of the state with the authority to decide who practices medicine in Maryland, and to discipline licensees who violate the Maryland Medical Practice Act.  It consists of 21 members, 13 of which are practicing M.D.s, 1 who is a practicing D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy), 1 who is a PA-C (Physician Assistant – Certified), and 6 who are consumer members not related to a medical field. Of the Board members, one is chosen from a list supplied by Maryland medical schools (Johns Hopkins University and University of Maryland Medical School), one is appointed by the Secretary of DHMH, one from a list supplied by the Maryland Hospital Association, and two are appointed by the governor. The remainder is appointed by the governor from a list of nominations voted on by all physicians in the state who are interested.  The Board members may serve no more than two consecutive 4-year terms. The Chairman is voted on by the members of the Board.  MBP is a department under the Secretary of Health Mental Hygiene,  which also includes the Boards of Nursing, Pharmacy, and Therapists among others.

The Board licenses or certifies the following practitioners:

  • Physicians
  • Physician assistants
  • Medical radiation
  • Radiation oncology/therapy technologists
  • Nuclear medical technologists
  • Respiratory care practitioners
  • Polysomnographic technologists

Monthly meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 1:00 PM.  Here the Board votes on recommendations of the Physician Assistant Advisory Committee regarding proposed regulations and scope of practice through individual delegation agreements. Portions of the Board meeting are open to the public. On review of the PA Advisory Committee’s recommendation, the Board may approve, modify or deny a request for certification or delegation agreement. When the Board votes to reject a job description or request for certification, the applicant shall be given the opportunity for a hearing before the Board. Additionally, the Board must provide a written explanation of the Board’s reasons for rejection or modification to the Committee.
