Physicians Advisory Board.

There is hereby created and established a board to be known as the Physicians Advisory Board, consisting of five physicians who shall be members in good standing of the State Medical Association of Alabama and shall reside in different sections of the State of Alabama. The duties of the members of said board shall be to meet with the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama, or with three or more members of said board of trustees, at such times and places as may be mutually agreed upon, due notice of said meetings to be given by the board of trustees, for the purpose of giving information and advice to the trustees as to the proper maintenance and operation of the medical school. The first five members of the Physicians Advisory Board shall be appointed by the Governor, one for a term of one year, one for a term of two years, one for a term of three years, one for a term of four years and one for a term of five years; and thereafter all members of said board shall be elected by the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama on nominations made by the State Medical Association or its authorized agents for five-year terms each. Vacancies shall be filled likewise by the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama, and the appointees shall serve for the unexpired terms. The members of said advisory board shall serve without pay, but shall be reimbursed for their actual expenses incurred in the discharge of their duties, to be paid in the same manner as the expenses of the university trustees are paid. The dean of the school of medicine shall be an ex officio member of the Physicians Advisory Board and shall sit with it in its deliberations.
