Did You Know

the Medical Board has a rule for the "Delegated Use of Devices and Procedures by Medical Assistants; Cosmetic Injections" and that these medical assistants need to be under the "direct" supervision of a physician?

Rule states that the use of medical therapeutic and cosmetic devices is the practice of medicine. Pursuant to the Medical Practice Act, Section 61-6-20, any person who practices medicine without a license in New Mexico is guilty of a fourth degree felony.

Rule, Paragraph A, Subparagraph (2) requires that the supervising physician be immediately available on the premises.

Rule, Paragraph D requires the supervising physician to complete a "certificate of training" form and to submit it to the Board prior to the use of a medical therapeutic or cosmetic device by the medical assistant. Although not specified in the rule, that "certificate of training" should be maintained in the medical assistant's personnel file.

Rule states that injection of cosmetic or aesthetic substances [e.g., botox] is considered to be the practice of medicine and "shall not be delegated to medical assistants".
