Attendings Invited to Apply for Two MEC Positions

At the end of this year, two member-at-large positions will expire on the Medical Executive Committee. These spots are now open for election to Attending category members.

A member-at-large represents the medical staff as a whole on MEC, rather than representing the department.

The eligibility requirements to be seated on the committee are listed on the following PDF.
