This application is restricted to the use of nonresidents of Ohio seeking express permission to practice psychology in Ohio for no more than 30 days per year in person or via telepsychology with current clients or patients temporarily in Ohio (presuming that the applicant’s home jurisdiction does not prohibit interjurisdictional telepsychology practice). This is not a temporary “license.” It is permission to practice in Ohio without a license. The thirty (30) days may be consecutive or intermittent, although those granted this permission are required to limit practice to thirty (30) days in any three hundred sixty-five day period, on a “rolling” basis. For example, permission granted by letter dated July 8, 2014 begins a one-year period ending July 7, 2015. Any service rendered on any given day counts as one of the thirty days. Permission granted is not intended to allow for the establishment of a new telepsychology relationship.
The Board is authorized to review applications for temporary permission to practice under State law:
§ 4732.22 Exceptions from licensing requirements.
The following persons are exempted from the licensing requirements of this chapter:
(2) Any nonresident temporarily employed in this state to render psychological services for not more than thirty days a year, who, in the opinion of the board, meets the standards for entrance in division (B) of section 4732.10 of the Revised Code, who has paid the required fee and submitted an application prescribed by the board, and who holds whatever license or certificate, if any, is required for such practice in the person's home state or home country.
Applicants must be judged to meet Ohio requirements for licensure under State law:
