The State Board of Physical "Therapy
Examiners, originally created by Chapter 606,
Acts of 1947, had its membership enlarged by
Chapter 742, Acts of 1966, and its membership
reduced by Chapter 362, Acts of 1968.

The Board consists of five members
appointed by the Governor upon the recom-
mendation of the Secretary of Health and Men-
tal Hygiene for terms of five years each. Initial-
ly, two members of the Board were licensed to
practice medicine in Maryland and three
members were licensed physical therapists, all
actively engaged in physical therapy in the
State. Upon the termination of the terms of the
medical members, each was replaced by a phys-
ical therapist. Appointments are made by the
Governor from lists submitted to him and the
Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene by the
American Physical Therapy Association of
Maryland. The Board examines, licenses, and
registers physical therapists and physical thera-
py assistants who wish to practice in Maryland
(Code 1957, Art. 43, sees. 604.14).

"The Department of Post-Mortem Examiners,
created by Chapter 69, Acts of 1939, to replace a
decentralized system of local coroners, is directed
by a commission composed, and the Professors
of Pathology at "The Johns Hopkins University
and the University of Maryland. "The Department
replaced the coroners of Baltimore City by a
chief and two assistant medical examiners, and
the county coroners by deputy medical exam-
iners. In 1957 the General Assembly authorized
three assistant medical examiners and an assis-
tant toxicologist. In 1965 an additional assistant
medical examiner and an immunochemist were
added and in 1969 a deputy chief medical exam-
iner and an additional toxicologist were autho-
rized. "The Commission appoints all personnel.
"The medical examiners investigate violent and
suspicious deaths or deaths unattended by a phy-
sician throughout the State. "They must file a re-
port of all deaths investigated with the Office of
the Chief Medical Examiner.

The records of the Department are open for in-
spection to the family of the deceased and are ac-
ceptable in court as evidence of the facts con-
tained. "The county pays the deputy medical
examiners for each death investigated. "The State
pays the salaries of the chief medical examiner,
the assistant medical examiners and the
toxicologists and the expenses of performing au-
topsies in the counties and the transportation of
bodies incident thereto. All other expenses of the
Department are paid by the City of Baltimore
(Code 1957, Art 22).
