A PA with an MD supervisor needs to register with the State Board of Medicine and a PA with a DO supervisor needs to register with the State Board of Osteopathic Medicine. The supervising physician also needs to be approved by the appropriate board to be a supervisor by completing a supervisor’s written agreement.
