Voluntarily Retired License 


VOLUNTARILY RETIRED STATUS

A voluntarily retired license is intended for those persons who have no intention of practicing in Minnesota any longer. There is no fee required and there is no requirement for continuing education. However, making this choice must be considered carefully since, if the doctor of chiropractic changes their mind, there may be significant cost and continuing education requirements for reinstatement. Additionally, if the license is retired for more than five years by a practitioner who has not been practicing elsewhere, they will need to retake the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Part IV Practical Examination. A review of the entire rule, (2500.2100 - 2500.2110)  including the reinstatement  provisions of Minn. Rule 2500.2110 is essential to considering this choice.  

You may request an application for VOLUNTARILY RETIRED STATUS  by clicking on the link or by calling the board office at 651-201-2850.


Emeritus Registration


A Doctor of Chiropractic-Emertius status is intended for those persons who have practiced for many years, and have retired their license in all jurisdictions. There is no fee required and there is no requirement for continuing education. However, making this choice must be considered carefully since, if the doctor of chiropractic changes their mind, there may be significant cost and continuing education requirements for reinstatement. Additionally, if the license is retired for more than five years, they will need to retake the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Part IV Practical Examination. A review of the entire rule, (2500.2115 - 2500.2135)  including the reinstatement  provisions of Minn. Rule 2500.2110 is essential to considering this choice.  

Typically, for those persons who qualify, an Emeritus application is automatically sent out when applications are received for Voluntary Retired Status. You may request an application for Emeritus Status by calling the board office at 651-201-2850.
