Additional Board Information

Prior to any practice as an athletic trainer in Idaho, an “Athletic Training Service Plan or Protocol” form with a directing physician must be filled out and submitted to the Board.

“Directing physician” means a designated person duly licensed to practice medicine in Idaho, registered with the board or a designated Idaho licensed chiropractic physician, who is responsible for the athletic training services provided by the athletic trainer and oversees the practice of athletic training of the athletic trainer, as established by board rule.

(a) This direction will be provided by verbal order when the directing physician is present and by written order or by athletic training service plans or protocols, as established by board rule, when the directing physician is not present.

(b) Upon referral from a physician licensed in another state and in good standing, the practice of athletic training or physical rehabilitation and/or reconditioning shall be carried out under the written orders of the referring physician and in collaboration with the directing physician.

An Athletic Training Service Plan or Protocol is to be maintained at each practice site and available to the Board upon request. The Athletic Training Service Plan or Protocol is a written document mutually agreed upon and signed and dated the athletic trainer and directing physician that defines the working relationship and direction between the directing physician and the athletic trainer as specified by Board rule. The Board of Medicine may review the written Athletic Training Service Plan or Protocol, job descriptions, policy statements, or other documents that define the responsibilities of the athletic trainer in the practice setting and may require such changes as needed to achieve compliance with these rules, and to safeguard the public.

Idaho Code requires each licensed athletic trainer to notify the Board within thirty (30) days of any change in the status of their directing physician. Failure to do so is grounds for disciplinary action.

This service provides current data extracted by the Idaho Board Of Medicine (IBOM) from its own database. The data in this web site is provided by and controlled entirely by the IBOM and therefore constitutes a primary source verification of licensure status as authentic as a direct inquiry to the IBOM. The information provided through the verification service is all of the information pertinent and available in that field of information in the IBOM database. The data is updated daily. No responsibility is assured or implied for errors or omissions created by technical difficulties. No one shall be entitled to claim detrimental reliance thereon. For information regarding those categories not included in the database and/or concerns about transmissions errors, inconsistencies, or other data issues that may be identified from time to time, contact the IBOM.

Q: How do I check the status of my application?

A: Visit Online Applications (Login) to check the status of application.

Q: How do I request a duplicate license?

A: The license/registration issued to you by the Board is public proof that you are entitled to pursue certain activities regulated by Idaho Law. If your license/registration becomes lost or destroyed, you may obtain a duplicate from the Board. If you did not receive your license/registration after making application for renewal, you must apply for a duplicate. A duplicate may also be requested if you have changed your name or address and wish to receive a license/registration bearing the updated information.  

Note: There is a fee, required by Idaho law, to obtain a duplicate. If you believe the fee should be waived, you may attach a written explanation of why you believe the fee should be waived, together with the application and the fee. 

You may complete the Application for Duplicate License (Link to form) form online, print it out and sign it (your signature must be notarized), and send it with the required fee of $10.00 to the Board of Medicine. Note, however, that your request will not be processed unless the fee is received with the application. A duplicate card will be mailed to the mailing address of record within 24 hours of your completed applications receipt in the Board office.

Q: How long does a licensed athletic trainer have to report a change in their directing physician?

A: Idaho Code requires each licensed athletic trainer to notify the Board within thirty (30) days of any change in the status of their directing physician. Failure to do so is grounds for disciplinary action.

Q: How many hours of continuing education are required for a licensed athletic trainer?

A: All athletic trainers holding current Idaho registration/licensure who are not certified by the national athletic trainers’ association board of certification or a nationally recognized credentialing agency, accepted by the board, are required to provide documentation of successful completion of eighty (80) hours of board approved continuing educational units during each three (3) year reporting period on forms provided by the board.

Q: How long does a licensed athletic trainer have to report any name change or changes in business and home addressed?

A: All licensed athletic trainers shall report to the board any name change or changes in business and home addresses thirty (30) days after the change becomes final.
