The New Hampshire Office of Licensed Allied Health Professionals has been established to identify for the public, quality healthcare professionals through a system of licensure, standards of practice, continuing competency, and regulatory oversight.


Due to a shortage of staff at the Office of Licensed Allied Health Professionals we are behind in the processing of renewal applications for Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Recreational Therapists.  If an individual has provided the renewal application either electronically or by paper an individual can continue to practice until they receive their new updated license.  Thank you for your patience while we process renewals.


IMPORTANT: When providing renewal information provide all information requested even if it is not marked "required". Example: Employment is not required because some people are not employed at the present time. If you have an employer you are required by law to provide the information.

Our mission is to assure that the services provided by health professionals are effective and of a quality consistent with the standard of care within each profession, and to safeguard the healthcare consumer against harm which may be caused by unqualified, impaired or unlicensed practitioners. We are charged with maintaining the integrity of the following professions:

Athletic Trainers

Genetic Counselors

Occupational Therapists

Physical Therapists

Respiratory Care Practitioners

Speech-Language Pathologists

Recreational Therapists

The Governing Boards qualify and license individuals, establish and enforce law and administrative rules, and provide information so the public can make informed decisions.
