Due to the state of emergency, Governor Baker and Commissioner Bharel have issued the following orders that may affect your licensing:
Once you are certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA), you may apply for an initial Massachusetts PA license.
You can apply for a temporary practice certificate if you have graduated from a PA program but have not yet taken the NCCPA certifying exam.
You can renew your Physician Assistant license online.
Notify the Board of Registration of Physician Assistants of all information related to your supervising physician.
Keep your name, address, and other information up to date with the Board of Registration of Physician Assistants.
To apply for a license from the MA Board of Registration of Physician Assistants, you may need to submit information from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
As a PA, you may perform fluoroscopic procedures using fluoroscopy equipment after you complete both didactic and clinical training, and achieve a passing grade on an examination through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
Physician assistants can petition the Board to request their licenses be placed on retired status. A retired status is a non-disciplinary status.
You can check the status of a health profession license, permit, certification, or Massachusetts Controlled Substances Registration (MCSR) online.
