F.S. 460.4061
460.4061 Restricted license.
(1) An applicant for licensure as a chiropractic physician may apply to the department for a restricted license without undergoing a state or national written or clinical competency examination for licensure if the applicant initially applies not later than October 31, 1994, for the restricted license and:
(a) Holds a degree from a college of chiropractic accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education or its predecessor agency and holds a bachelor’s degree.
(b) Has continuously held, since 1979, a license to practice as a chiropractic physician in another state, territory, or national jurisdiction and has actively practiced as a chiropractic physician for the 5 years immediately preceding application.
(c) Has never been disciplined for an offense that would be a violation under this chapter or chapter 456, imposed by another jurisdiction on the applicant’s license to practice as a chiropractic physician.
(d) Provides a completed application on forms approved by the department and pays all application and licensure fees applicable to applicants for licensure by examination, except the examination fee itself.
(2) Before granting a restricted license, the board may require an applicant to appear before the board. The board may not require a restricted licensee to practice under the direct supervision of a full licensee. However, the board may impose reasonable restrictions on the applicant’s license to practice as a chiropractic physician in this state. These restrictions include, but are not limited to, requiring a restricted licensee to:
(a) Submit to periodic and random departmental audits of the licensee’s patients’ treatment records and review of those records by the board.
(b) Subsequently appear before the board.
(c) Submit written reports to the department and board.
(3) A restricted licensee shall meet all statutory and regulatory requirements that are not in conflict with this section and that are imposed on a full licensee.
(4) A restricted licensee shall, if a disciplinary action against the licensee is not pending before the department and the licensee is not under discipline by the board, become a full licensee upon expiration of the 2-year restricted license if the licensee pays all applicable fees.
