Pending Change to Verification of Licensure

Assistant Physician Licensure
In 2014, a new classification of licensure for physicians was created with the passage of Senate Bills 716 and 754. This legislation established licensure for assistant physicians. An assistant physician, as defined by Missouri law, is an individual who is a resident and citizen of the United States or is a legal resident alien who has not completed an approved postgraduate residency, has successfully completed Step 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination or the equivalent and is proficient in the English language.
The Missouri State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts has posted the DRAFT Assistant Physician rules online. The Board solicited comments on these draft rules and will be reviewing those comments at their September 27, 2015 conference call.
The rule promulgation process is lengthy as represented on the Rulemaking Flow Sheet. We have highlighted the flow sheet to represent where we are in the process. At this time, we are unable to estimate the effective date of the rule, however, we will continue to update the website as information becomes available. For full text of the bills, please click the links below:
The Supreme Court of Missouri ruled in Missouri Association of Nurse Anesthetists, Inc. v. State Bd. of Registration for Healing Arts, 343 S.W.3d 348 (Mo. 2011) that a state agency cannot make a statement of general applicability, including answering general questions or interpreting or clarifying statutes, without going through a formal rulemaking process.
