Physical Therapy Compact Commission


Beginning June 1, 2020, the Division and its boards will begin to accept members of the public in its building but with some new rules and safeguards.
  • If you are an applicant or licensee, and you plan to hand deliver items, you will be required to remain in the lobby area to meet with a representative of your board. The Division will limit the number of members of the public in the lobby to THREE. Others will be required to remain in your vehicle or outside until you are able to meet with board staff. The Division and its boards kindly ask you to socially distance while visiting the Division. Please have any documents that require notarization completed, including the notarization, prior to your visit.
  • If you plan to visit the Division to hand deliver items or take an examination, you will be expected to answer questions regarding your health and any exposure to COVID 19. If you have any of the common symptoms of COVID 19, you will not be granted entry into the building. Staff will be on hand to meet you at the front of the building and you will be expected to maintain social distancing within the Division of Professional Registration.
  • If you are a member of the public who wishes to attend the public meeting of one of our boards, the board will provide you information to attend virtually. Those who do need to gain entry into the building for the meeting will be required to maintain social distancing in the building. You may be asked to wait outside if you have a scheduled appointment with the board and answer questions regarding your health and any exposure to COVID 19.

SCAM ALERT!

The Missouri Board of Healing Arts has become aware that someone has been calling licensees claiming to be from the Board of Healing Arts or the Division of Professional Registration and reporting that the licensee or office is under investigation. The caller says that the licensee or office must post a bond and attempts to obtain payment over the telephone or provides information of where to send the purported bond.

Please be aware that this is a scam. There is no such bond associated with any type of Board activity. Additionally, under no circumstances will the Board contact licensees and solicit any kind of payment over the phone.


Physical Therapist/Physical Therapist Assistants Workforce Data Collection

The Missouri State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts and the University of Missouri, School of Medicine are collaborating to collect workforce data to better understand the characteristics of the physical therapist/physical therapist assistants workforce in Missouri.

To meet the healthcare needs of our population, Missouri needs to assess the areas of practice, quantity, demographic characteristics, and practice locations of our physical therapist/physical therapist assistants workforce.

The collection period will run from November 9, 2019 to January 31, 2020. Data collected through this physical therapist/physical therapist assistants survey will be analyzed by the School of Medicine.

Completion of the survey will take approximately 10 minutes.

This survey is voluntary and anonymous and your answers will not be connected in any way to the data collected for your license renewal.
