OAR 847-050-0035
Grounds for Discipline


The performance of unauthorized medical services by the physician assistant constitutes a violation of the Medical Practice Act. The supervising physician and/or agent is responsible for the acts of the physician assistant and may be subject to disciplinary action for such violations by the physician assistant. The physician assistant is also subject to disciplinary action for violations. Proceedings under these rules are conducted in the manner specified in ORS 677.200 (Disciplinary procedure).


In addition to any of the reasons cited in ORS 677.190 (Grounds for suspending, revoking or refusing to grant license, registration or certification), the Board may refuse to grant, or may suspend or revoke a license to practice as a physician assistant for any of the following reasons:


The physician assistant has held himself/herself out, or permitted another to represent the physician assistant to be a licensed physician.


The physician assistant has in fact performed medical services without the direction or under the supervision of a Board-approved supervising physician or agent.


The physician assistant has performed a task or tasks beyond the physician assistant’s competence or outside the scope of practice of the supervising physician or outside the practice agreement as stated in OAR 847-050-0040 (Method of Performance). This is not intended to limit the ability of a physician assistant to learn new procedures under personal supervision.
