Answer: A clinical pharmacist (Pharm D) is considered a "medical professional." Therefore, he or she may perform the Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) if the direct supervision requirements are met (see below).

Reminder: The Pharm D must be licensed in his or her state and working within his or her stated scope of practice.

Direct Supervision
"In the office setting" means the physician must be present in the office suite and immediately available to furnish assistance and direction throughout the performance of the procedure. It does not mean the physician must be present in the room when the procedure is performed.
