(A) The state medical board may issue to an applicant under section 4778.03 of the Revised Code a license to practice as a genetic counselor, designated as a supervised practice license, if both of the following apply:
(1) The applicant meets the requirements specified in section 4778.03 of the Revised Code other than being a certified genetic counselor;
(2) The applicant is in active candidate status with the American board of genetic counseling.
(B) A supervised practice license authorizes the holder to engage in the activities authorized by section 4778.11 of the Revised Code while the holder is under the general supervision of a genetic counselor licensed under section 4778.05 of the Revised Code or a physician. General supervision does not require the supervising licensed genetic counselor or physician to be present while the holder engages in such activities, but does require the licensed genetic counselor or physician to have professional responsibility for the holder and be readily accessible to the holder for professional consultation and assistance.
A supervised practice license is valid from the date of issuance until the earlier of one year from that date or the date a license is issued under section 4778.05 of the Revised Code. A supervised practice license may not be renewed.
