Continuing professional competency

  • rules


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


A naturopathic doctor shall maintain continuing professional competency to practice naturopathic medicine.


The director shall adopt rules establishing a continuing professional competency program that includes, at a minimum, the following elements:


A self-assessment of the knowledge and skills of a naturopathic doctor seeking to renew or reinstate a registration;


Development, execution, and documentation of a learning plan based on the assessment; and


Periodic demonstration of knowledge and skills through documentation of activities necessary to ensure continuing competency in the profession; except that a naturopathic doctor need not retake any examination required by section 12-250-107 (2)(d) for initial registration.


The director shall establish that a naturopathic doctor satisfies the continuing competency requirements of this section if the naturopathic doctor meets the continuing professional competency requirements of one of the following entities:


A state department, including continuing professional competency requirements imposed through a contractual arrangement with a provider;


An accrediting body recognized by the director; or


An entity approved by the director.


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


After the program is established, a naturopathic doctor shall satisfy the requirements of the program in order to renew or reinstate a registration to practice naturopathic medicine.


The requirements of this section apply to individual naturopathic doctors, and nothing in this section requires a person who employs or contracts with a naturopathic doctor to comply with the requirements of this section.


Records of assessments or other documentation developed or submitted in connection with the continuing professional competency program are confidential and not subject to inspection by the public or discovery in connection with a civil action against a naturopathic doctor. Neither the director nor any other person shall use the records or documents unless used by the director to determine whether a naturopathic doctor is maintaining continuing professional competency to engage in the profession.
