The application forms for grandfathering pathologists’ assistants in to New York State licensure are now available here: http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/patha/pathaforms.htm. All Fellow members in New York should apply now for the grandfathering provision, which is open for a period of two years.
New graduates: note some issues have been identified and the committee is working to gain clarification before advising on next steps.
The AAPA will continue to monitor licensure in New York and all states, providing details to members as they become available. If you would like to help in this effort by monitoring licensure activity in your state, please fill out a volunteer form at http://www.pathassist.org/Volunteer, and we will be in contact with you.
