Doctor of Podiatric Medicine Licensure Information
The practice of podiatry has evolved from a limited branch of medicine to a regulated branch of medicine and surgery in the State of Ohio.
The practice of podiatry is defined in the Ohio Revised Code 4731.51 as “the medical,
mechanical and surgical treatments of the foot, the muscles and tendons of the leg governing the function of the foot; and the superficial lesions of the hand other that those associated with trauma” In order to practice podiatric medicine in Ohio, the individual must be licensed and maintain a current license by the Board. Podiatry licenses can be verified quickly and easily through the Board’s website.

New Forms and Fees for Physicians and Limited Branch practitioners
Beginning October 19, 2009, the State Medical Board of Ohio is charging a $50.00 fee to complete and send a letter of good standing or license verification to another State Board, Canadian Province or other jurisdiction. The Board will verify both the Ohio training certificate and the permanent license for the same fee if the practitioner held both licenses in Ohio.
If you trained in Ohio prior to 1999 with a “temporary” license, the Board will send a verification memo and the fee of $50.00 is not required. If you have questions regarding the forms or fees, you may call the CME and Renewal department at 614-728-3113, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
