Swadeep Nigam Re-elected Secretary-Treasurer of the NV State Board of Osteopathic Medicine
The common saying is that some things are better the second time around. This statement may be true as, in a recent meeting of the NV State Board of Osteopathic Medicine, the Board re-elected fellow Board member Swadeep Nigam to serve a second term as a Secretary-Treasurer of the Board.
The Board is comprised of seven members, all appointed by the Governor, of which five are physicians engaged in osteopathic medicine in Nevada (D.O.), and the other two are public members. Nigam is serving as a public member of the Board. Before joining the Osteopathic Board, Nigam was the Commissioner, Nevada Equal Rights Commission. Nigam also serves as the Commissioner on the Clark County Asian American Pacific Islanders Community Commission. “I am honored to continue as Secretary-Treasurer of the Board with full commitment towards public health for all Nevadans,” said Nigam.
The Osteopathic Medicine Board is responsible for adopting and enforcing regulations necessary to enable it to carry out its duties as prescribed under the Nevada laws, including but not limited to rules which establish the principles of medical ethics to be used as the basis for determining whether the conduct which does not constitute malpractice is unethical.
Additionally, the Board records its proceedings relating to licensing and disciplinary actions. The Board or any investigative committee of the Board may issue the person a letter of warning, a letter of concern, or a non-punitive admonishment at any time before the Board initiates any disciplinary proceedings against the person. Unless otherwise noted, all the records are open to public inspection at all reasonable times of every osteopathic physician and every physician assistant.
Mr. Swadeep Nigam for yours ongoing efforts for Public Safety!! 👍
