  • Texas Physician Assistant Board - Renewal Notification Update

    Instead of renewal reminder letters sent in previous years, PAs will now be receiving first class postcard reminders in the mail 60-90 days prior to their license permit expiration date. 

    This change allows the Board to streamline the renewal reminder processes while ensuring licensees receive a prompt and efficient renewal reminder.

    The renewal process itself hasn’t changed just the type of notification. The postcard provides instructions for renewing online.

    The postcards are being mailed to the PAs whose current permit expires on 8/31/2017.

  • CE Requirements Update for MRTs, LMRTs, and NCTs: Formal Instructor-Led CE Hours Not Required Pending MRT Board Review

    Concerns have been raised regarding new requirements related to the number of continuing education hours that must be formal, instructor-led courses designated for Category A or A-plus credits of continuing education by an organization recognized by ARRT. The concerns will be reviewed by the Texas Board of Medical Radiologic Technology for further consideration and possible updates to those requirements. During that period of review, such requirements will not be enforced. The recent numerical increases to LMRT and NCT continuing education hours required will be enforced moving forward, however the previous requirements for number of instructor lead courses will be acceptable until that review is completed.

    Please see a detailed list of transition requirements in the Continuing Education Requirements section under Licensee Resources.

  • Sunset Review - The mission and performance of the Texas Medical Board is under review by the Legislature as required under the Texas Sunset Act. The Act provides that the Sunset Commission, composed of legislators and public members, periodically evaluate a state agency to determine if the agency is still needed and to explore ways to ensure that the agency’s funds are well spent. As part of the evaluation of the medical board, the Sunset Commission will also review the mission and operations of the Texas Physician Health Program (TXPHP). Based on the recommendations of the Sunset Commission, the Texas Legislature ultimately decides whether an agency continues to operate into the future.
