Merit Badges

Need a Card That Says You Exceed the Need for a Merit Badge?
ACEP believes that certification by ABEM or AOBEM supersedes the need for so-called “merit badge” short courses and opposes such requirements for board certified EPs. Many credentialing bodies, however, still require physicians to produce evidence of completion of the short courses. For members required to have such a card, ACEP offers its members a set of personalized cards online.

Scam Alert: NC Medical Board Urges Awareness and Caution

The North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB) recently issued an alert urging physicians and physician assistants to beware of telephone calls from individuals claiming to be investigators from the Board. The callers have been saying the physician or PA is under investigation and asking for personal or financial information. Such calls are not legitimate.

The NCMB does NOT contact licensees by telephone to give notice of pending action or investigation. If you receive such a suspicious call, hang up and do not release any information.
