Special Requirements:

Chiropractic Record Keeping Requirement: Beginning in calendar year 2014, all actively licensed chiropractic physicians will be required to complete two hours of record keeping (see our topic: Documentation) in every even numbered year in order to renew their licenses. This two hour requirement is not in addition to the twelve hours of continuing education required for renewal.

 

New Licensee Information: A chiropractor who has graduated from an accredited chiropractic program within the 12 months preceding their first license renewal is exempt from the CE requirement but must attend a 3 hour Board meeting as specified. Each person who is issued a new license to practice chiropractic in Arizona on or after January 1, 2013, is required to attend three hours of a single regularly scheduled Board meeting within the first year of residence in Arizona. The licensee cannot distribute the three hours of Board meeting attendance over two or more Board meetings. The licensee shall notify the Board in writing within ten days of moving to Arizona. The meeting attendance must be pre-scheduled and pre-approved by Board staff. Continuing education credit will not be awarded if the licensee is attending the meeting as a subject of an investigation or other Board review or if the licensee fails to properly schedule attendance.

 

 

Reporting Requirements: Licensee must fill out State Board form listing each CE course completed
