(2) The agreement shall be signed by the physician and the physician assistant.

(3) The physician assistant shall hold a current certificate to practice as a physician assistant .

(4) If a physician supervisory plan applies to the physician assistant's practice, the physician shall hold an approved physician supervisory plan.
