The practice of podiatry is regulated and monitored by the Texas State Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners. The regulations governing podiatrists are codified in Texas Occupation Code § 202 and the Board of Podiatric Medical Examiner’s Rules promulgated in Title 22 Part 18 of the Texas Administrative Code.
The Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners may reprimand, place on probation, suspend, or revoke a podiatrist’s license for a violation of the law which relates to the practice of podiatry or a Board Rule, Texas Occupations Code § 202.501. Possible offenses include:
