Senate Bill 202 transferred four occupational regulatory programs from the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to the Texas Medical Board (TMB). Medical Physicists, Medical Radiologic Technologists, Perfusionists, and Respiratory Care Practitioners are now regulated by the TMB and each occupation’s respective board/advisory committee.
Verifications are available online here.
The TMB began processing the registration/renewal of existing perfusionist licenses on January 4, 2016.
REGISTRATION (RENEWAL) PROCESS
