A. The board shall issue licenses and certificates to applicants who are qualified under this chapter. The board shall only issue licenses under this chapter on the vote of a majority of the full board. Subject to review by the board at its next board meeting, the executive director may issue temporary licenses pursuant to section 32-1522.01, license renewals and certificates to qualified applicants.
B. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a license or certificate issued by the board expires unless renewed each year.
C. Each physician who holds an active license to practice naturopathic medicine in this state shall renew the license on or before January 1 of each year by supplying the executive director with information the board determines is necessary and payment of the annual renewal fee prescribed in section 32-1527.
D. A person who holds a certificate issued by the board other than as provided in subsection F of this section shall renew the certificate on or before July 1 of each year by supplying the executive director with information the board determines is necessary and payment of the annual fee prescribed in section 32-1527.
E. A licensee or certificate holder whose license or certificate is current and who is not currently the subject of a probationary order or licensure suspension by the board may request, at any time, and shall be granted cancellation of the license or certificate.
F. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a naturopathic medical student who holds a certificate to engage in a clinical training program shall renew the certificate for each year of the student's clinical training by supplying the executive director with information the board determines is necessary and paying the annual renewal fee prescribed in section 32-1527. The initial annual renewal date shall be one year after the board approved the application for the clinical training program.
G. A person who fails to renew a license or certificate by the due date shall pay a late renewal fee as prescribed in section 32-1527. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a license or certificate automatically expires if not renewed within sixty days after the due date.
H. The board may reinstate a license or certificate on payment of all renewal and penalty fees as prescribed in section 32-1527 and, if requested by the board, presentation of evidence satisfactory to the board that the applicant for reinstatement of an expired license is professionally able to engage or assist in the practice of naturopathic medicine and still possesses the professional knowledge required. If an applicant for reinstatement of an expired license has not been licensed and actively practicing in a jurisdiction of the United States or Canada in the three years immediately preceding the application, the board may issue a limited license that requires a period of general supervision by another licensed naturopathic physician not to exceed one year.
I. After a hearing, the board may refuse to reinstate a license or certificate for any grounds prescribed in section 32-1551.
J. The board and the executive director may prorate initial annual fees when a new application is approved by dividing the annual amount by twelve and multiplying the results by the number of months remaining until the next annual renewal date.
