Welcome to the Louisiana Physical Therapy Board...

Department of Health and Hospitals

The Louisiana Physical Therapy Board was created within the Department of Health and Human Resources. The Board consists of seven members who shall be appointed by the Governor.

This board is legislatively mandated to license and regulate the physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who wish to work in Louisiana. The Board is mandated to interpret the scope of practice for physical therapy, write regulations, and discipline licensees who have violated the law. The most important function of the Board is to protect the citizens of Louisiana.

Live vs. Online CEUs

There has been some confusion about what is considered a "traditional" course. A webinar is not considered to be live/traditional because you are not participating in the classroom in the presence of the instructor. Webinars are considered "distance learning" and will be counted against the 15 hours permitted for distance learning hours (online, webinars, home study). If an instructor tells you otherwise, please be advised that you are being misinformed.

Verification of a Drug or Device Supplier

To verify that your Legend (prescription) drug or device supplier is licensed in Louisiana, please visit:


1) Visit the link above

2) Type in the name of your supplier and click "Lookup"

3) Check to see if your supplier is displayed on the list

4) If you supplier is on the displayed list, expand the selection and print a copy for your records as proof of due diligence

5) If your supplier is NOT on the displayed list, then the prescription drug or device supplier is not authorized (licensed) to sell or distribute in or into the State of Louisiana.
