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.
The TMB began processing the registration/renewal of existing Respiratory Care Practitioner licenses on January 4, 2016.
- Temporary permits are not eligible for renewal. At this time, additional temporary permits or extensions are not available. If you have an existing temp permit and need to move to a full, you will need to submit a new application, using the online system located in the Licensing section of our website.
