32-2915. Licensure; issuance; duplicate licenses; renewal; continuing education; expiration; cancellation
A. The board shall issue a license to practice homeopathic medicine in this state if the applicant meets all board requirements for licensure and pays the licensure fee.
B. The board may issue a duplicate license to a person who holds a license under this chapter on payment of the duplicate license fee.
C. At least thirty days before the first day of the month in which a license was initially issued, the executive director shall notify the licensee of the renewal date and provide a renewal form. The executive director shall send this notice by first class mail to the address the licensee most recently provided to the board.
D. Each licensee shall include with the renewal form a statement that the licensee has completed at least twenty hours of board-approved continuing education in the preceding year. The board shall not renew a license if the licensee does not fully document compliance with this subsection. The board may waive the continuing education requirements of this subsection for a period prescribed by the board if the licensee's noncompliance was due to disability, military service, absence from the United States or circumstances beyond the control of the licensee. If a licensee fails to complete the continuing education requirements of this subsection for any other reason, the board may grant an extension of not more than sixty days. A licensee who fails to comply with the continuing education requirements of this subsection and who has not been granted a waiver pursuant to this subsection commits an act of unprofessional conduct and is subject to probation or licensure suspension or revocation.
E. A licensee shall submit a completed application for license renewal and the renewal fee each year on or before the last day of the month in which the license was initially issued. A license expires if it is not renewed within sixty days. A licensee who fails to do this by the first day of the following month must also submit a late fee as prescribed by the board. A person who practices homeopathic medicine after a license has expired is in violation of this chapter.
F. The board may issue a license to a person whose license has expired only if that person applies for a license as prescribed in sections 32-2912 and 32-2913.
G. With each application for licensure renewal, the licensee shall include a report of disciplinary actions, restriction and any other action placed on or against the license or practice by any other state regulatory board or agency of the federal government, including the denial of a license for failing a special purpose licensing examination. The report shall include the name and address of the sanctioning agency, the nature of the action taken and a general statement of the charges leading to the action taken.
H. On request of a licensee, the board shall cancel that person's license to practice homeopathic medicine if the licensee is not the subject of a board investigation or disciplinary proceeding. The board may cancel the license of a person under investigation for violating this chapter or board rules if the licensee admits to the violations in writing and on the board record.
