Assistant Physician Licensure
On July 10, 2017, Governor Eric Greitens signed Senate Bill 50 into law. Under the new law, a prospective applicant who would have met the licensure requirements between August 28, 2014 and August 28, 2017 is now potentially eligible for an assistant physician's license. Please note, SB 50 will not go into effect until August 28, 2017. Accordingly, applicants desiring to apply pursuant to the new law should wait until after that date to submit their application for licensure, fee and accompanying documents.
Senate bills 716 and 754 were signed by Governor Nixon and established licensure for Assistant Physicians. These bills became law effective August 28, 2014. Rules implementing laws governing assistant physicians will become effective on January 30, 2017. Applications will be available online by the same date. The Board can accept applications starting January 31, 2017. Assistant physicians are defined as:
- "Assistant physician", any medical school graduate who:
- Is a resident and citizen of the United States or is a legal resident alien;
- Has successfully completed Step 1 and Step 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination or the equivalent of such steps of any other board-approved medical licensing examination within the two-year period immediately preceding application for licensure as an assistant physician, but in no event more than three years after graduation from a medical college or osteopathic medical college;
