Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

36-4-1Board 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.
