Need an Intent to Practice acknowledgement letter?Comments: 0 comments
When a physician assistant completes the Board’s online Intent to Practice (“ITP”) form, which establishes a physician assistant/supervising physician relationship, an acknowledgement letter confirming that relationship is sent to the primary supervising physician; a copy of the letter is also mailed to the physician assistant. It is the physician assistant’s responsibility to keep a copy of the acknowledgement letter at all places where the physician assistant practices. Since instituting the online ITP process, the Board has not maintained copies of the acknowledgement letters and, thus, is unable to provide additional copies. Requests for copies of ITP letters will not be processed.
WHAT IF I AM UNABLE TO FIND MY ITP LETTER?
The information provided on the Board’s website may serve as an official confirmation of the physician assistant/supervising physician relationship. For example, if the Board’s website indicates that a physician assistant is currently being supervised by a particular physician, that indication is an official acknowledgement from the Board of that particular physician assistant/supervising physician relationship. The Board advises anyone not in possession of a written acknowledgement letter to use the information from the website in its place. To find information about a particular physician assistant’s supervisory relationship, enter the physician assistant’s name using the “Look Up a Licensee” tool available on this website. To enter a name, click on “Look Up a Licensee” in the green Quick Links box on the right side of the Home Page.
