Medical Commission Demographic Census

The Washington Medical Commission recognizes the importance of having accurate information about physicians and physician assistants licensed in our state. To ensure Washington citizens continue to enjoy high quality health care in the future, the Washington State legislature mandated under RCW 18.71.080(1) and 18.71A.020(4) that physicians and physician assistants complete a demographic census at renewal. This is a requirement for license renewal.

The Medical Commission will use the information collected to enhance our understanding of Washington MD and PA practice settings, medical specialties, and board certifications. The information collected will play a vital role in federal and state workforce planning efforts for Washington citizens.
