Assistant Physician, not Physician Assistant

In a move that creates some confusing liability issues for physicians, to say nothing of quality of care issues for patients, the State of Missouri has now allowed for a license called an "assistant physician" to be issued to someone who has been graduated from any medical school and has completed steps 1 and 2 of the USMLE but has not completed any residency training.  These folks will be allowed to call themselves "doctor" and be allowed to practice as regular doctors.  Interestingly, the state of Missouri has traditionally placed more restrictions on nurses than most states and does not allow for independent practice by advanced practice nurses as many states have done to help ease the primary care physician deficit.
