Panel Chairmen

The panel chairmen are attorneys appointed by the Idaho State Bar.

Hearings

The panel chairman schedules and conducts hearings. It is important that panelists and persons involved appear at the time and place hearings are scheduled. Failure to appear can cause inconvenience and substantial loss in time and expense for many people. It is the responsibility of the parties to arrange their own representation. Any Claimant or Respondent who does not intend or wish to appear or be represented at the hearing is requested to notify the Panel Chairman immediately. The law does not require the claimant to be represented by an attorney.

Board of Medicine

The Board of Medicine receives requests for hearings, makes appropriate notifications, appoints the panel, and assists the panel chairmen as requested in making the necessary arrangements for hearings.
