Physician assistant resources

Physician assistants (PAs) must renew their licenses annually and keep the Board informed whenever they add or change supervising physicians. In addition, PAs are expected to comply with the administrative rules that govern PA practice in North Carolina. This page includes links to resources and information regularly accessed by PAs.

About the Intent to Practice form

The online Intent to Practice (ITP) form is used to add a supervisor, change a supervisor and remove a supervisor. PAs are required to submit the ITP form before they may lawfully begin performing medical acts in NC. PAs are required to submit a new ITP form each time they add or change a primary supervising physician. The PA is also responsible for removing the names of primary supervising physicians when their supervisory role ends.
