SB 47: Physicians; visiting sports teams’ physicians; provide for licensure exemption; requirements; limitations; agreements with other states

Voted on Wednesday March 15, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

This legislation allows a licensure exemption from visiting sports teams' physicians, physician assistants, and athletic trainers who are licensed and in good standing to practice in another state if there is a written or oral agreement with a sports team to provide care to the team members and coaching staff traveling with the team for a specific sporting event.
If a physician, PA, or trainer has been invited by a national sport governing body to provide care to team members and coaching staff at a national sport training center in this state, the license is limited to just that body and for the duration of the event.
