(A)

(1) No person shall engage in the practice of podiatric medicine and surgery without a current, valid license to practice podiatric medicine and surgery issued by the state medical board.

(2) No person shall advertise or claim to be authorized to practice podiatric medicine and surgery unless the person holds a current, valid license to practice podiatric medicine and surgery issued by the board under this chapter.

(3) No person shall practice podiatric medicine and surgery after the person's license has been revoked, or if suspended, during the time of such suspension.

(B) A document that is signed by the president and secretary of the board and has affixed the official seal of the board to the effect that it appears from the records of the board that a license to practice podiatric medicine and surgery in this state has not been issued to a particular person, or that a license, if issued, has been revoked or suspended, shall be received as prima-facie evidence of the record of the board in any court or before any officer of this state.

(C) Division (A) of this section does not apply to a person who holds in good standing a valid license to practice podiatric medicine and surgery issued by another state and is practicing as a volunteer without remuneration during a charitable event that lasts not more than seven days.

When a person meets the conditions of this division, the person shall be deemed authorized by the state medical board, during the course of the charitable event, to practice podiatric medicine and surgery and shall be subject to the provisions of this chapter authorizing the board to take disciplinary action against a podiatrist. Not less than seven calendar days before the first day of the charitable event, the person or the event's organizer shall notify the board of the person's intent to practice podiatric medicine and surgery at the event. During the course of the charitable event, the person's scope of practice is limited to the procedures that a physician authorized under this chapter to practice podiatric medicine and surgery is authorized to perform unless the person's scope of practice in the other state is more restrictive than in this state. If the latter is the case, the person's scope of practice is limited to the procedures that a podiatrist in the other state may perform.
