The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) is recruiting new participants to serve on the Board of Veterinary Medicine, which licenses, regulates, and exercises disciplinary authority for the profession of Doctors of Veterinary Medicine. HEALTH is recruiting for the following positions:
* Two licensed veterinarians
* One licensed veterinarian whose practice includes the treatment of equine or large animals

"The Board protects the public by advising HEALTH in all matters pertaining to the practice of the profession of veterinarians," said Michael Fine, MD, director of HEALTH. "Becoming a member of one of HEALTH's regulatory Boards is a great opportunity to get involved in our state's public health infrastructure and process."
The Board of Veterinary Medicine meets quarterly at the Department of Health in Providence. Members serve a three-year term (not to exceed two consecutive three-year terms). Applicants with diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
