§3270-B. License and regulation

A physician assistant is not permitted to practice until the physician assistant has applied for and obtained a license issued by the Board of Licensure in Medicine, which must be renewed biennially, and a certificate of registration. All applications for certificate of registration must be accompanied by an application by the proposed supervisory physician that must contain a statement that that physician is responsible for all medical activities of the physician assistant.
