  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING NAME CHANGES

    If you are a Physical Therapist or Physical Therapist Assistant, and you have undergone a legal name change via marriage, divorce or otherwise, please be advised that in order for the Board to change the name in which your P.T. or P.T.A. license is issued, you are REQUIRED to submit one of the following:

    1) a certified marriage certificate specifying the name change following marriage;
    2) a certified divorce or dissolution of marriage decree specifying the name change, or;
    3) other certified court order specifying the name change.

    Please do not submit foreign marriage certificates that do not reflect your name change following marriage, as the Board is unable to accept them for purposes of changing your name on your license.

    The Board does NOT return name change documentation, and duplicate renewal cards or wall certificates will NOT be generated after a name or address change without submitting the replacement request form and the appropriate fees to the Board.
