The Board is a state licensing and regulatory agency authorized by the legislature to protect the public against the unqualified, incompetent, unprofessional and unlawful practice of physical therapy. The Mississippi Physical Therapy Practice Act establishes the standards for the practice of physical therapy and defines the scope and limitations of practice. The Board adopts regulations to carry out the laws governing the practice of physical therapy. As a part of its licensing role, the Board examines educational training credentials of applicants, sets standards for continuing competence and makes final licensing decisions on physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. In its regulatory role, the Board receives, investigates, and adjudicates complaints against licensees and others who violate the physical therapy licensing law.
