Introduction to Practice Questions

Please note that while we are able to provide general guidance with respect to the practice of the professions, the appropriateness and legality of any particular activities performed by a licensed professional will depend on the particular circumstances presented. Violations of any of the laws or rules relating to professional practice may result in charges of professional misconduct. Additionally, while the Office of the Professions is able to provide information about the scope of practice of a profession, it does not interpret insurance policies or offer opinions as to whether a particular service should or should not be covered by insurance.
