Request for Applications for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Medical Review Board
Request for applications for the Medical Review Board.
FMCSA solicits applications from interested physicians to serve on the Agency's Medical Review Board (MRB). The MRB, authorized by the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), provides scientific advice to the Secretary of Transportation (the Secretary) and the FMCSA Administrator on medical issues relating to the physical qualification standards for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. In 2006, the Secretary appointed five physicians for 2-year terms to serve on the MRB. In 2008, the Secretary reappointed the physicians to the MRB, with the chairperson currently serving a 2-year term, and the other four members serving staggered 1-year terms. In 2009, the Secretary will appoint three new members to a 2-year term, and reappoint one of the current members to a 1-year term to ensure the MRB will operate continuously with five active members. As a result, the chairperson's and one of the members' terms will expire in 2010 and the other three members' terms will expire in 2011.
