The New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners is established for the protection of the public’s health, safety, and welfare. They license medical professionals, adopt regulations, determine standards of practice, investigate allegations of physician misconduct, and discipline those who do not adhere to their requirements, It also is responsible for the oversight of a number of allied health providers.
