About the Board
The Maryland Board of Physicians (the “Board”) is an agency of the state with the authority to license physicians and other health care providers such as physician assistants, radiographers, radiation therapists, radiologist assistants, nuclear medicine technologists, respiratory care practitioners, psychiatrist assistants (renewals only), polysomnographic technologists, athletic trainers, and naturopathic doctors to practice in Maryland, and to discipline licensees who violate the Maryland Medical Practice Act.
Continuing Education Requirements
Satisfactory evidence of completion of at least 50 hours of continuing education credits during every two-year renewal period.
The courses selected must be approved by any of the following:
The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians
The Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education
The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education
A Naturopathic Doctor’s licensing authority or professional association of another state which meets the standards adopted by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
One of the requirements of licensure for naturopathic doctors is a consultation and collaboration agreement with a Maryland licensed physician.
A collaboration and consultation agreement means an agreement whereby a naturopathic doctor and physician will collaborate and consult regarding a patient’s care, but in which the patient does not enter the care of the consulted physician. The consultation does not create a physician-patient relationship and the consulted physician does not direct patient care or engage directly in the care of the patient.
If an N.D. fails to obtain the required continuing education credits, the Board may impose a fine up $100 for each credit not obtained.
Renewal Fees $512
