DORA PA Rulemaking Complete!

  • The Colorado Medical Board finalized rules on Aug. 17 to implement changes set forth in  SB23-083: Physician Assistant (PA) Collaboration Requirements. This new law removes the requirement that a physician assistant be supervised by a physician or podiatrist except in certain circumstances.

    These revisions can now be found in Medical Board Rule 1.15. The Board also has developed a Frequently Asked Questions document that may clarify any uncertainty created by these changes.

    Please review these documents to familiarize yourself with the nature of collaborative agreements, and when supervising agreements are instead appropriate.

Get to know CAPA Leadership!

Alysia Wiley, Chief Delegate

Hello CAPA members! I am honored to serve as CAPA's Chief Delegate this year. I began my PA leadership journey as my program's Assembly of Representatives Representative. Following that, I was elected to the SAAAPA board for several years. My first job took me all the way to Cleveland, Ohio, but I was able to return home to Colorado after a few short years. Upon my return, I got involved with CAPA and have been a board member since 2014. 

In my tenure with CAPA I have seen many different sides of the organization and I am humbled to have met and worked with so many wonderful and dedicated PAs. I have also witnessed the dedication and hard work of so many that have put in countless hours toward moving Colorado PA practice forward. Colorado's PAs are a vital part of the medical community and seeing how CAPA has been able to support and advance PA practice is mind blowing. I truly believe that CAPA is the strongest it has ever been, and it's only getting better.
I keep coming back to the board because I believe in CAPA's voice. PA practice is not perfect in our state, but we have come so far. The PA voice needs to remain strong and I am so excited to support the Colorado delegation at the annual AAPA conference this year. My goal as Chief Delegate is to ensure that Colorado PAs are heard within our national organization.
Please, don't hesitate to reach out to your board! We would love to connect and to help you get involved.
