Scope of Practice

The Ohio State Medical Association monitors and actively participates in state and federal legislation and promulgation of rules related to physician scope of practice and expansions or limitations to allied practitioner’s scopes of practice.

The OSMA adheres to the principle that practitioners seeking to expand their scope of practice must have the appropriate experience, training and education to treat patients safely and that the physician should be the leader of the health care team.
