OR becomes 3rd state to drop supervisory requirements

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.


OR, UT, and ND all have passed significant PA legislation in the last year. Physicians do not have to sign charts and are not responsible for the errors of PAs. Individual hospitals or practices may still require any level of supervision of PAs(or NPs) that they want, but it will no longer be required.
HB 3036 removes supervision requirements and chart review for all PAs with 2000 hours of post graduate clinical practice. It also allows PAs to apply for a telehealth license which previously only docs could apply. Lastly PAs will no longer be required to apply for dispensing privileges in Oregon. They will be required to register with the Oregon Medical Board instead.
