North Carolina General Statutes § 90-202.6 Examinations; subjects; certificates

(a)        The Board of Podiatry Examiners shall hold at least one examination annually for the purpose of examining applicants under this Article.  The examination shall be at such time and place as the Board may see fit.  The Board may make such rules and regulations as it may deem necessary to conduct its examinations and meetings.  It shall provide, preserve and keep a complete record of all its transactions.  Examinations for registration under this Article shall be in the English language and shall be written, oral, or clinical, or a combination of written, oral or clinical, as the Board may determine, and may include the following subjects: anatomy, physiology, bacteriology, chemistry, dermatology, podiatry, surgery, materia medica, pharmacology and pathology.  No applicant shall be granted a license certificate by the Board unless he obtains a general average of 75 or over, and not less than fifty percent (50%) in any one subject.  After such examination the Board shall without unnecessary delay, act on same and issue license certificates to the successful candidates signed by each member of the Board; and the Board of Podiatry Examiners shall report annually to each licensed podiatrist in the State of North Carolina.

(b)        The Board may waive the administration of a written examination prepared by it for all initial applicants who have successfully completed the National Board of Podiatry Examination.  The Board may administer to such applicants and require them to complete successfully an examination to test clinical competency in the practice of podiatry.

(c)        Any applicant who fails to pass his examination shall within one year be entitled to reexamination upon the payment of an amount not to exceed three hundred fifty dollars ($350.00), but not more than two reexaminations shall be allowed any one applicant prior to filing a new application.  Should he fail to pass his third examination, he shall file a new application before he can again be examined.
