Q: Is the credentialing process the same for Physicians Assistants (PAs) as it is for physicians and medical professionals?

Q-Tip:

No. While PAs provide collaborative direct patient care in many care settings, they are not licensed independent practitioners in many states. Hospital/system based privilege sets are often the method that state medical boards (such as Ohio) use to delegate the oversight of PA clinical care competency (along with applicable supervisory agreements with designated supervisory licensed independent practitioners). PA privileges are usually defined in each state’s law and should stimulate consultation with your medical staff specialty counsel to review and understand your state’s PA requirements and scope of authorized activity that then develop into a clinical privilege set. Some state’s statute may have more flexibility in the PA scope of practice.
