UNMH Chief of Staff

The organized medical staff is a legal entity with its own existence, bylaws, powers, privileges and responsibilities.


The medical staff organization has two major purposes:

  • To establish mechanisms for controlling the quality of care rendered by medical staff members and other practitioners granted clinical privileges

  • To provide a structure whereby practitioners have input into decision making within the institution.
