Do I have to be a doctor to own a medical practice?

If its just medical consulting no procedures, Are there any guidelines as to how to start

You can OWN a consulting practice, but you can’t be the one giving out the actual advice unless you are either a doctor or a nurse practitioner.In other words, you can own the business and hire docs and nurses to give out the advice. A nurse (R.N.) can also give out medical advice, within the guidelines and accepted practices of an R.N. as outlined by the Board of Registered Nurses for his/her state.
