PA State Laws and Regulations
This annually produced publication features the most up-to-date and comprehensive collection of key provisions in state PA laws and regulations, including the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and, for the first time ever, the U.S. territories. Past editions are also available.
PAs should continue to use “physician assistant” or “PA” as their official legal title in a professional capacity, particularly in clinical settings and with patients. AAPA is transitioning to use “physician associate” when possible and when it does not present a legal or regulatory conflict. For more information, please visit FAQs.
