The Board of Podiatry regulates the practice of podiatry in DC. The Board advises the Mayor and enforces the law. The Board also evaluates qualifications, administers exams, and recommends standards and procedures. The Board approves licenses; receives and reviews complaints; requests investigations; conducts hearings, issues subpoenas, examine witnesses, and administers oaths; and issues an annual report.

The podiatrists must have been engaged in practice for at least three years preceding appointment. The consumer must be at least 18 years old, not be a health professional or in training to become one, and may have no household member who is involved directly or indirectly in providing health care.
