Medical Board Suspends Its Recommendations for Supervision of PAs

Scottsdale, Ariz. - While standing by its original analysis, the Arizona Medical Board today decided to suspend its recommendations regarding PA supervision approved at its September 7th meeting in Tucson. The Board‘s decision was based on comments from the PA community and other stakeholders. Four Board members volunteered to serve on a committee to study the matter further. The committee will consider the roles of both the supervising physician and the supervising physician‘s agent.
