Notice to Rescind Indian Health Service Circular 76-04, "Physician Extenders"

This notice rescinds Indian Health Service (IHS) Circular No. 76-04, "Physician Extenders."  The IHS Circular 76-04, is 41 years old and is being removed to reflect that all physician extenders listed in IHS Circular 76-04 have been broken out in to different disciplines and have their own Chapter in the Indian Health Manual.  Physicians Assistants is Part 3, Chapter 28; Nursing is Part 3, Chapter 4; Midwives is covered under Part 3, Chapter 13; and Community Health Representatives is Part 3, Chapter 16 making IHS Circular 76-04, "Physician Extenders" obsolete.

Please discard your binder copies and any file copies of IHS Circular No. 76-04 at your earliest convenience.
