August 7, 2020 - It appears that the Board of Chiropractic Medicine (BOCM), in its 9-hour virtual meeting yesterday, adopted an emergency rule to allow Florida licensed DCs to attain all 40 license renewal CE hours through synchronous learning (livestreaming of an approved event) or through online CEs for the current biennium, due to COVID. We are unsure of the text of the emergency rule and it was difficult to understand the final motions. Please stay tuned for further reports when the emergency rule text is made available.
Chiropractic graduates having difficulty taking the licensing exams due to Covid-19 virus cancellations can rest assured that any resulting delinquency in student loan payments will not be a bar to Florida licensure, thanks to a new Florida law. Delays in exam administrations and employment may cause some graduates to fall delinquent for lack of a job.
