Section 34-24-275

Renewal; continuing education.

Every licensed podiatrist who desires to continue the practice of podiatry shall annually, on or before the first of October, pay to the secretary-treasurer of the state board a renewal registration fee in a reasonable amount set by the board and comply with such other conditions as may be prescribed by the State Board of Podiatry; provided, however, that the license shall be renewed within 30 days after October first, or the licensee shall pay the renewal registration fee and a penalty of $300. Among the conditions to be prescribed by the State Board of Podiatry is the requirement that evidence be furnished by the applicant for renewal of completion of a continuing education program. Such program shall consist of no less than 12 hours, which shall be obtained at the annual state meeting of the Alabama Podiatry Association or any other continuing education program approved by the State Board of Podiatry. Any licensed podiatrist who is inactive in the practice of podiatry for a period of two years may have his or her license renewed to practice his profession on such conditions as may be prescribed by the State Board of Podiatry.
