Radiation Oncologist Certified as Medical Review Officer
Thursday, November 14, 2002
Colin Poulter, M.D., professor emeritus of radiation oncology at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, was certified as medical review officer by the Medical Review Officer Certification Council.
This designation qualifies Poulter to evaluate drug and alcohol testing for employers. Many governmental agencies and large and small employers require drug and alcohol testing and federal law requires that a qualified medical review officer make final determinations of laboratory tests that indicate substance abuse.
In this role, Poulter may also work with corporations to develop policies and programs for workplace drug and alcohol testing and the management of chemical dependency. Poulter has been with the Wilmot Cancer Center for 37 years. He is a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, American Association of Medical Review Officers, and American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology.
