Are you a physician’s assistant?  Ever wondered where the licensing rules come from?  In Florida, the licensing rules that apply to physician assistants can be found at 458.347 (7).  To read the full statute, go here.

Basically, a physician’s assistant must be at least 18 years of age.  Also, you must pass an exam.  Third, you must complete the application form and application fee.  This application form includes a certificate of completion of a physician assistant training program, a sworn statement of any prior felony convictions, a sworn statement of any previous revocation or denial of licensure or certification in any state, and two letters of recommendation.

The license must be renewed every 2 years.  The renewal requires paying a renewal fee and a including a statement of no felony convictions in the previous 2 years.
