Our mission is to empower PAs through advocacy and education; providing resources for physician assistants as well as the community in the pursuit of excellence for team-based medicine.
The Rhode Island PA Practice Act (RIGL 5-54) was enacted in 1976. The PA profession had been in existence less than 10 years; PAs were an unknown entity and the provisions of the act reflected this. Since then both the PA profession and the health care system have undergone a dramatic evolution and while the Act has been amended there remains language that does not reflect the current realities of PA/physician team practice.
The Act will update the law to:
Increase the annual continuing medical education requirement to 25 hours
Create an additional PA position on the Board of Licensure for PAs
