Consideration of Requests for Review

The Board being present, Dr. Hollingsworth moved, Dr. West seconded and it so carried to enter executive session to discuss the requests for reconsideration of examination results of Renee Alexander, Charles Swayze, James Trapp, Travis Wilson and John Zendler.

Dr. West moved to return from executive session, Dr. Boughton seconded and it so carried.

Dr. Hollingsworth moved, Dr. West seconded and it so carried that pursuant to the Board’s review and consideration of the above-referenced individuals’ requests, the Board stands by its original decision in each examination and, therefore, denies the requests of Renee Alexander, Charles Swayze, James Trapp, Travis Wilson and John Zendler.



The Board discussed House Bill 257, currently before the Legislature, which would require the licensure of acupuncturists. It was noted that all medical professionals who perform acupuncture would also have to obtain said license. Continuing Education

Dr. Moldenhauer addressed a memorandum from Mr. Hetrick concerning the Board’s policy on continuing education requirements for first-time renewal of license. The Board reviewed the continuing education rules, and clarified that schoolwork may also be recognized as applicable continuing education. The Board determined that the rules were to be applied as written and licensees renewing their license for the first time must document 12 credit hours continuing education during the prior twelve months. School course work would be acceptable if completed during the twelve months prior to renewal.

The Board also addressed the issue of home-study courses being used for continuing education credits and noted the issue had been addressed previously. The Board does not approve or accept home-study courses for continuing education credit.

There being no further business to come before the Board at this time, Dr. Hollingsworth moved to adjourn. Motion seconded by Dr. West and carried.

Board approved 4-22-99
