How many PAs can I supervise?


Hi Jennifer,

I am looking to bring on a few physician assistants to help out, and I would like to know how many I can supervise.

Thanks, Dr. L


Answer provided by Jennifer Kirschenbaum, Esq:

Depends where we are talking. In NY in a private practice, a doctor can supervise 4 PAs at any given time. At an Article 28 - that number goes from 4 to 6.

According to reference information on web:

“Supervision In New York State, a physician may employ or supervise no more than four PAs in the physician's practice; in a correctional facility, no more than six PAs; and, in a facility licensed pursuant to PHL Article 28, no more than six PAs.”
