4731-12-06 Visiting podiatric faculty certificates.

(A) A visiting podiatric faculty certificate may be issued to an applicant holding a current, unrestricted license to practice podiatric medicine and surgery in another state or country if he or she has been appointed to serve in this state on the academic staff of a college of podiatric medicine and surgery accredited by the council on podiatry education of the American podiatric medical association, or its predecessor accrediting organizations as determined by the board, and he or she meets the eligibility requirements of section 4731.572 of the Revised Code. A current, unrestricted license is a license or other authority granted by the appropriate entity or governmental body which lawfully permits the applicant to practice podiatric medicine and surgery without governmental restriction or limitation.

(B) The holder of a visiting podiatric faculty certificate shall practice only as is incidental to teaching duties at the school, or at those teaching hospitals affiliated with the school. Those duties shall be set forth upon the application and approved by the board.

(C) By signing the application for a visiting podiatric faculty certificate, the dean of the school and the medical director of each affiliated teaching hospital are responsible for assuring that the holder of the certificate does not engage in practice outside its scope. They are further responsible for reporting to the board any belief that practice outside its scope has occurred.

(D) An individual shall be granted only one visiting podiatric faculty certificate, and shall be ineligible to apply for its renewal or a second visiting podiatric faculty certificate.
