NCT and LMRT Training Programs

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.  


Please note that approval of the NCT and LMRT Training Programs is part of this transition.


At this time all existing NCT and LMRT Training Programs previously approved by DSHS have been extended through 8/31/2019 by the TMB.

The Texas Medical Radiologic Technology Advisory Board adopted proposed rules related to LMRT and NCT program approval at their February 15, 2019 meeting.  These rules were adopted by the Texas Medical Board on March 1, 2019.  Board staff will be sending out renewal notices to current programs within the next 30-45 days.


Applications for new program approvals should also be available on our website within the next 30-45 days.


Please keep checking our website for process changes and updates.  Previously approved programs are listed below.
