The mission of the Board of Registration in Podiatry is to ensure that only fully qualified podiatrists are permitted to provide podiatric medicine and surgery services to the citizens of New Hampshire.
The Board issues licenses only after a thorough credential review and examination and monitors the continuing competence of licensees through required continuing education. The Board also provides oversight of podiatric practices of licensees, taking disciplinary action when necessary to ensure that ethical and other professional standards are maintained.

I. Clinical Resources
- Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment(SBIRT) is a strategy in the healthcare sector for reinforcing healthy behaviors, identifying problematic drug and alcohol use early, reducing substance misuse, and referring to treatment those who need it. This evidence based practice is a process with three main elements - Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment in medical settings.
- The NH Prescription Drug Monitoring Program offers prescribers and pharmacists a valuable tool for improving both patient care and the health and safety of our communities. By taking advantage of this resource, prescribers will not only better manage patients' health and prescription usage, but also promote public health and safety through the prevention and treatment for controlled substance abuse, and assist in the reduction of the diversion of controlled substances.
