Area(s) of Interest: Physician Leadership Professional Development & Education
The California Medical Association (CMA) Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) is seeking physicians who are interested in serving on judicial review panels as part of IMQ's new Judicial Review Service.
Because hospitals often struggle to provide unbiased judicial review panels, IMQ’s Judicial Review Service will give physicians and hospitals three or more qualified independent physicians to hear evidence in peer review cases.
These peer review hearings may be held in any area of the state and each is projected to last three to five consecutive days. Physicians will be paid on an hourly rate of $250 for their time spent traveling to and from the hearing, their participation in the panel-selection process and their participation throughout the entire peer review process, including post-hearing deliberations and the creation of a final report. Travel expenses (hotel, meals) also will be reimbursed.
Physicians selected as candidates must hold an unrestricted California medical license and be either in active practice in California or retired from active medical practice for no more than two years.
For additional information on IMQ’s Judicial Review service or on applying to be a physician panelist, please contact Leslie Iacopi at (415) 882-5167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
