Supervising Physician Absence

Recommended Posts


I am currently working for a small Primary Care Clinic in Washington State.

Apparently my supervising MD was escorted out of the building and is no longer working with the organization.

There is a different doc, a DO that is listed as my secondary supervising physician.

Do I need a different delegation agreement with the DO since my primary supervising doc is no longer in the picture?

What is the time line in which this needs to take place?

How long does it take to get a delegation agreement set up through the DOH with the DO (I already have my Osteopathic PA license)?

Is a delegation agreement currently required or does this continue to be waived related to the pandemic?

Thank you for your input.

OR now uses SPO (Supervsing Physician organizations). This means that every doc in the practice is a supervisor with no named primary. Any time a new doc joins the practice they become a supervisor. 

interesting work around....


just make us independent!!
