36-4-1. Board of examiners--Appointment and terms of members--Vacancies. The State Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners, hereinafter called the Board of Examiners, consists of nine members to be appointed by the Governor for terms of three years. No member may serve more than three consecutive full terms. However, appointment to an unexpired term is not considered a full term for this purpose. Each member shall hold office until a successor is appointed and qualified. Any vacancy on the board shall be filled by appointment by the Governor. The board shall at all times include six doctors of medicine and one doctor of osteopathy. The Governor may stagger terms to enable the board to have different terms expire each year.
The terms of members begin on October thirty-first of the calendar year in which the Governor appoints the member, unless otherwise designated by the Governor. The appointee's term expires on October thirtieth in the third year of appointment.
Any member's term ending June 30, 2013, or thereafter is extended to October thirtieth in the year the term is to expire.
