Board Counsel are currently working on the regulations for the change in our legislation which allows the Temporary Perfusion license to last the full 2 years regardless of any pass/fail record of the new graduate. In addition, the Board has been petitioned to approve a temporary extension of 6 months to all Pennsylvania Temporary Graduate Perfusionist Licenses. It has been detailed to the Commissioner, Board Counsel and the Board the critical role perfusionists are playing during this pandemic specific to the care of COVID positive ECMO patients. Board Counsel is taking this request to the Department of Health.
Last, PSPS is working to extend the deadline for all PA Perfusion Licensure Deadlines of 12/31/2020 for renewal for state licensure. Stay tuned for more information!
