What is the Difference Between an OPMC Investigation Committee and a Hearing Committee?

A hearing committee reviews the case referred from the investigation committee. The Hearing committee is also comprised of two physicians and a lay person.

OPMC and the physician may both present evidence pertaining to the complaint, and then the committee decides whether to  dismiss the charges or issue a sanction against the physician.

Clearly, you want to avoid being charged with misconduct and  that is why an effective presentation at the interview is so important.
