The South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners (SDBMOE) intends to adopt rules to address the following:

  • clarify the timeframe for those individuals renewing their license through the interstate medical licensure compact;
  • establish the different options the Board has when it considers mirroring physician discipline from another state; and
  • establish continuing education as a requirement for physical therapy license renewal.

A public hearing will be held at the First Dakota National Bank Building, 101 N. Main Ave., Room 215, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on September 14, 2017, at 10:00 a.m Central Time. The hearing will also be accessible via the Dakota Digital Network (DDN) at CAP A, 500 E. Capitol, Pierre, SD, and the Rapid City SDSM&T Public Room, 501 E. St. Joseph St., EEP Building Room 144, Rapid City, SD. Persons who have special needs for which the Board can make arrangements are asked to call (605) 367-7781 at least 48 hours in advance of the hearing.

The proposed rules can be found here. Materials sent by mail must reach the Board by September 10, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. Central Time to be considered.
