Surgical Assistant Registry

Surgical Assistant Registry

In 2017, the Tennessee General Assembly enacted Public Chapter 410 which requires individuals who are working as and seeking to assume the title of “registered surgical assistant”, to register with the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners as a surgical assistant.  The Board’s administrative office is actively working towards implementation of this legislation.  More information, including the application and registration requirements, will be made available here.  Please check back soon for more information.
