Physical Therapy Regulations

The Maryland Board of Physical Therapy Examiners (BOE) is the licensing and continuing education approval entity for physical therapy professionals in Maryland.  The BOE has been in existence since 1947 to regulate the practice of physical therapy in the State of Maryland. Physical therapist assistants have been licensed in this State since 1972. Board meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month and are open to the public.

Duties of the Board include writing regulations, interpreting the scope of practice, educating licensees, and disciplining those who violate the law. The most important function is protecting the citizens of Maryland.
