65-7204.Application for licensure; criteria for educational programs; registrant under previous act deemed to be licensed. (a) An applicant applying for licensure as a naturopathic doctor shall file a written application on forms provided by the board, showing to the satisfaction of the board that the applicant meets the following requirements:

(1) Education: The applicant shall present evidence satisfactory to the board of having successfully completed an educational program in naturopathy from an approved naturopathic medical college.

(2) Examination: The applicant shall pass an examination as provided for in K.S.A. 65-7205, and amendments thereto.

(3) Fees: The applicants shall pay to the board all applicable fees established under K.S.A. 65-7207, and amendments thereto.

(b) The board shall adopt rules and regulations establishing the criteria for an educational program in naturopathy to obtain successful recognition by the board under paragraph (1) of subsection (a). The board may send a questionnaire developed by the board to any school or other entity conducting an educational program in naturopathy for which the board does not have sufficient information to determine whether the program should be recognized by the board and whether the program meets the rules and regulations adopted under this section. The questionnaire providing the necessary information shall be completed and returned to the board in order for the program to be considered for recognition. The board may contract with investigative agencies, commissions or consultants to assist the board in obtaining information about an educational program in naturopathy. In entering such contracts the authority to recognize an educational program in naturopathy shall remain solely with the board.

(c) An individual holding a valid registration as a naturopathic doctor under the naturopathic doctor registration act on December 31, 2010, shall be deemed to be licensed as a naturopathic doctor under the naturopathic doctor license act, and such individual shall not be required to file an original application for licensure under the naturopathic doctor license act.
