PA Cancellation by Request

  

Once a license is cancelled, the physician assistant will no longer be able to practice in the state of Texas as a physician assistant.  In order to practice again in Texas following cancellation, a physician assistant must file an application for relicensure and meet all requirements for licensure in effect at that time (including current NCCPA certification, etc.).

 

To request cancellation of a license, complete and return the cancellation request form (link below) to the Board for approval before the expiration date of the current registration permit.  Refunds of registration fees already paid cannot be made.  Notification will be sent if the physician assistant does not qualify for cancellation due to a pending investigation or another reason.

If you have any questions, please contact the Registration Department at Registrations@tmb.state.tx.us .

 

PA Inactive Status

A PA with a currently active physician assistant license may decide to obtain an “inactive” registration status.  Current regulations state that a PA license may remain on an inactive status for no longer than 5 years.

Please read the relevant board rule, Tex. Admin. Code, Sec. 185.8, regarding the inactive physician assistant licensure status. 

 

Board Rules

 

Because the PA Inactive Status Request form must be received by our office before the expiration date of the current registration permit, completed and bearing original signatures, as well as bearing an original seal of notary public, it cannot be faxed back to our office.
