Due to COVID-19, additional health care practitioners will be needed to treat ill Pennsylvanians. This need may extend beyond the capacity of the professionals currently licensed by Pennsylvania’s health-licensing boards. To increase the available number of practitioners, the PA Department of State requested a suspension from Gov. Wolf to several provisions that create barriers to temporary licensure. The Department announced the following suspensions and waivers this week:
- Additional Reactivation Requirements Suspension (applies to multiple Boards)
- Renewal Extension Speech-Language Pathologists & Audiologists
- Waiving Certain Requirements for Graduate Medical Trainees
