Medical Board wants proof of PA training directly from the Army

Recommended Posts

I have applied for a license in another state...the first time I have been licensed anywhere but Texas since I left the Army in 95. I submitted a very complete application. The person who handles the applications sent me an email stating he need proof of my PA training from the Army and, no, the degree I got from OU (because that is who we were affiliated with), will not suffice.

In 30 years I have never been asked by any board or credentialing authority to get a confirmation form from the Army and I don't even know how to start. It blows my mind this guy wants that and won't accept a college transcript or confirmation from the college. 

I was just curious if any of my former military colleagues had ever run into something like this. I have provided a DD 214 but nope...won't do

I just called the "school house" in San Antonio and with a written release, they sent the paperwork.

Interesting. I thought about calling the academy but figured I'd be met with confusion and administrative slow down. Any idea who or what department to contact?
