Michigan Task Force on Physician's Assistants

The Committee on Physician's Assistants was formed with the enactment of Public Act 420 of 1976, signed by the Governor on January 9, 1977. The Act regulated the practice of physician's assistants in the State of Michigan, providing a system to determine and approve the qualifications of physician's assistants, creating a committee on physician's assistants, prescribing its powers and duties, and prescribing penalties. On September 30, 1978, this authority was transferred to the Public Health Code, Public Act 368 of 1978, as amended and became the Task Force on Physician's Assistants.
 
The Task Force on Physician's Assistants consists of 13 voting members: 7 physician's assistants, 1 physician member from each of the Boards of Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, and Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, and 3 public members. Each board member serves 4 year terms.
