TITLE 22. EXAMINING BOARDS

PART 9. TEXAS MEDICAL BOARD

CHAPTER 160. MEDICAL PHYSICISTS

22 TAC §160.7

The Texas Medical Board (Board) adopts amendments to §160.7, concerning Qualifications for Licensure, without changes to the proposed text as published in the November 3, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 6111) and will not be republished.

The amendments to §160.7, amend the rule by deleting a reference to a foreign educational credentialing service that is no longer in operation and adding language authorizing international credit evaluations from credential evaluation organizations approved by the American Board of Radiology. The amendment also removes language regarding a master or doctorate degree that was unnecessary and covered by another section of the rule.

No comments were received regarding adoption of the rule.

The amendments are adopted under the authority of the Texas Occupations Code Annotated, §153.001, which provides authority for the Board to recommend rules to establish licensing and other fees and recommend rules necessary to administer and enforce this chapter.

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the adoption and found it to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.

Filed with the Office of the Secretary of State on January 12, 2018.
