It is the opinion of the Board that a psychologist may offer a medication recommendation to the prescribing physician about a patient he or she has evaluated when such recommendation is within the boundaries of her or her competence based on his or her education, training, supervised experience, or appropriate professional experience. It is then incumbent on the physician, based upon all the evidence before him or her (which may include the recommendations of the psychologist) to decide what, if any, medication or medical treatment to prescribe.
