BILL NUMBER:S6980

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the not-for-profit corporation law, in relation to the
organization of university faculty practice corporations

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 - amends section 1412 of the
Not-for-Profit Law to extend the current list of professions
authorized to organize or cause to be organized a university faculty
practice corporation to include persons who are authorized to
practice physical therapy and who are members of the faculty of the
same accredited college or university with an accredited doctor of
physical therapy program.

Section 2 - provides that this act shall take effect immediately.

PURPOSE AND JUSTIFICATION:
Currently, university faculty practice
corporations are permitted for the practice of medicine, the practice
of dentistry, the practice of chiropractic and the practice of
optometry. These faculty practice corporations have proven to offer
valuable clinical and educational experience to students in these
professions. This bill proposes to extend these same educational
benefits to students who are studying in doctor of physical therapy
programs.

EXISTING LAW:
Section 1412 of the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law
currently permits the organization of university faculty practice
corporations to provide clinical instruction and supervision, and
incident thereto rendering professional services, of students of
accredited medical school, dental schools, chiropractic colleges, and
optometry colleges.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
