Physical Therapist Licensure by State

Each U.S. state requires that physical therapists hold a state-specific PT license in order to practice in that state. Furthermore, the requirements for licensure vary by state.

Below you'll find a list of PT licensing agencies by state, complete with contact information. It is best to always review the state requirements for licensure directly from the licensing agency, as they are updated frequently. But have no fear - your knowledgeable recruiter can answer any questions you may about licensure!
