Workers’ Compensation Board

Impartial Specialist Program Overview

Welcome to the Board's new Impartial Specialist (IS) Program. Impartial Specialists perform an important public service as medical experts to the Board and its Judges.

The Board is recruiting highly qualified medical experts from around the state in a variety of specialties and sub-specialties, particularly Orthopedists, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Pain Management and PM&R. The Chair, in consultation with the Board's Medical Director's Office, individually selects each Impartial Specialist. Current Impartial Specialists include faculty from academic institutions as well as expert clinicians in private practice throughout the state.

To learn more about IS qualifications, compensation and application process, please review Chair Announces Impartial Specialist Program Improvements and Seeks Applications from Physicians (Subject Number 046-506) and the Impartial Specialist Program Details
