To foster greater involvement among stakeholders, a NC MOC Advisory Board was developed with representatives from various medical departments, Continuing Medical Education and the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (AHEC).

The Advisory Board helps to guide the North Carolina Maintenance of Certification program. Their responsibility is to review and approve the projects.  The Advisory Board members have sufficient leadership roles to influence the clinical operations of the UNC Medical Center and to ensure that sufficient resources and support are available for a project to be successful.

Broad representation on the Board ensures alignment with hospital initiatives and priorities.
