Michigan Board of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery

The Michigan Board of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery was originally formed with the enactment of Public Act 115 of 1915. On September 30, 1978, this authority was transferred to the Public Health Code, Public Act 368 of 1978, as amended.
The practice of podiatric medicine and surgery, as defined in the Public Health Code, means the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of abnormal nails, superficial excrescenses occurring on the human hands and feet, including corns, warts, callosities, and bunions, and arch troubles or the treatment medically, surgically, mechanically, or by physiotherapy of ailments of human feet or ankles as they affect the condition of the feet. It does not include amputation of human feet, or the use or administration of anesthetics other than local.
The Public Health Code mandates certain responsibilities and duties for a health professional licensing board. Underlying all duties is the responsibility of the Board to promote and protect the public's health, safety, and welfare. This responsibility is implemented by the Board by ascertaining minimal entry level competency of health practitioners and verifying continuing education during licensure. The Board also has the obligation to take disciplinary action against licensees who have adversely affected the public's health, safety, and welfare.
The Michigan Board of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery consists of 9 voting members: 5 podiatrists, 1 physician's assistant and 3 public members. Each board member serves 4 year terms.
