Part 1 General Provisions: The proposed rules clarify the requirements for rendering telehealth services. Ensuring
the health, safety, and welfare of the client and his or her animal patient outweighs any burden that may be placed on
the individual as a result of this rule. No burdens on individuals have been identified.
Part 2 Education and Examination: The proposed rules in this part identify approved educational programs. There is
no new burden being placed on an individual as a result of these rules.
Part 3 Licensure: The rules in this part pertain to licensure by examination, licensure by endorsement, limited
licensure, and relicensure. The proposed rules require an applicant for licensure by endorsement or relicensure to
disclose each license, registration, or certification in a health profession or specialty issued by any other jurisdiction
or entity and require the applicant to demonstrate that no disciplinary proceedings are currently pending and that any
prior sanction has been satisfied before being licensed by endorsement or relicensed. Any burden placed on an
individual as a result of these proposed rules is outweighed by the need to ensure that the applicant is safe to practice
ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of Michigan citizens. No burdens on individuals have been identified.
Part 4 Supervision and Delegation: The rules in this part pertain to the supervision of a veterinary student, limited
licensee, veterinary technician, or veterinary assistant and the delegation of a duty by a licensee. The level of
supervision required and a licensee’s duties in a delegation are both clarified to ensure public safety. Any additional
burden placed on an individual would be outweighed by the need to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of
Michigan citizens when a delegatee is performing a duty within the scope of the practice of veterinary medicine. No
burdens on individuals have been identified.
Part 5 Medical Records: The rules in this part pertain to the duty to keep medical records. The rule has been revised
to ensure that all relevant information is retained and to advise of the client’s rights related to an animal patient’s
medical records. The revisions will ensure that the records of an animal patient are available to the client, the
department, and public health officials, as needed. No new burden is placed on an individual as a result of this rule.
A. Despite the identified burden(s), identify how the requirements in the rules are still needed and reasonable
compared to the burdens.
