License Renewals

Many of you have incurred an address fine. If your 2019 renewal notice is returned to the board, you have an address flag on the database. You will not be issued a license until you have paid the $100 fine. No exceptions.

If you no longer need/want your Maryland Physical Therapy license, simply do nothing, you will automatically become inactive after midnight May 31. If at any time you wish to become active again, you may follow the instructions for reinstatement.

License numbers ending with an even number renew in even-numbered years. Renewals begin on March 13 for the 2019 renewal. Letters with instructions are sent out the 1st week in March. The instructions will also be available here when the link is up. The Board must receive your online renewal by May 22st to ensure that your license is mailed back to you before May 31st. Failure to renew your license prior to its expiration date will result in loss of licensure and the right to practice physical therapy/limited physical therapy in Maryland.

    Licensees are not required to take courses that are only on the "Approved" list. Please review the regulations. 

    Licensees must have earned the 3.0 CEUs for a PT, or 2.0 CEUs for a PTA.
    1CEU = 10 CE hours (0.1 CEU = 1 CEU hour)

    CEUs will not be required if you were licensed in 2018.

    Do you have questions about ceu requirements? CEU regulations are online - click on Laws and Regulations. Click on Code of Maryland. Chapter 8,(03) Continuing Education Requirements. See (05) for Renewal Requirements. All your questions can be answered by simply reviewing the regulations.

    If you fail to renew your license by its expiration date, you may be eligible for Reinstatement but only by meeting all requirements.
