Georgia State Board of Podiatry Examiners


The Georgia State Board of Podiatry Examiners is a four-member board appointed by the Governor to protect, promote and preserve the public health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Georgia. The Board is composed of three licensed, practicing podiatrists and one consumer member. They are responsible for the regulation of podiatrists in Georgia. The Board reviews applications, administers examinations, licenses qualified applicants and regulates the practice of licensees throughout the state. Complaints are investigated and, if warranted, disciplinary action may be taken by the Board. Board meetings are held approximately four times each year at the Secretary of State’s office in Macon and are open to the public. Persons wishing to bring matters for the Board’s consideration should submit a written request to the office. 
The practice of podiatry consists of the diagnosis, care and treatment of abnormalities of the human foot and leg. Licensed podiatrists are allowed to perform area specific surgery. As a learned science, licensure is considered after meeting specific podiatric education, residency and examination requirements.


The Professional Licensing Boards Division experienced a major server system malfunction on June 17th that resulted in a lingering interruption of service. Although we have not corrected every issue, important progress has been made. Starting on June 24th, manual submissions of applications and renewals for professional licenses began to be processed again by SOS staff. The SOS IT Team and the vendor will continue to work around the clock to enable online applications and renewals. Please continue to check the website for further updates. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this continues to cause.
