On Monday, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed legislation that repeals requirements for PAs to have a specific relationship with a physician in order to practice. This law also recognizes a PA's ability to practice medicine consistent with their education, training, and experience.
This is in large part due to Senate File 033 and efforts by the Wyoming Association of PAs to ensure that competent, capable PAs practicing in Wyoming don't have to unexpectedly leave their patient panels when a physician is suddenly or unexpectedly unavailable. This bill will improve access to care for Wyoming's largely rural population. Great job, Wyoming!
