The Office of the Medical Director of the State of Michigan will be able to conduct health and medical education programs in the future, but this isn’t one of them.
In a statement to The Ann Arbor News, the office of the medical director said it has been in talks with the State Board of Education about the future of the Office of Medical Director.
The announcement comes after the State Council of Health and Human Services (SCHHS) passed a resolution last month supporting the creation of an Office of State Medical Directors, which is set to go into effect in 2020.
The SCHHS also recently approved the creation and expansion of a similar office for the Michigan Medical Board.
The Office of medical directors would serve as a “primary resource for State health, education and regulatory programs.”
In a press release, the Office said it would provide information on the State Medical Boards and related policies and regulations to state employees.
In addition, it would develop and implement programs that would provide education and training to physicians and other health professionals in Michigan.
The office is currently in the planning phase, according to a press statement.
The position will be open for a one-year term starting in the fall of 2020.
It will continue to operate as a state resource for health and educational programs.
