Introduction

Continuing education (CE) is an essential component of professional development for chiropractors in Florida, ensuring that they remain knowledgeable about the latest practices and advancements in their field. The Florida Chiropractic Coalition is committed to helping our members meet their CE requirements efficiently and effectively. This article serves as a comprehensive guide to understanding the continuing education requirements for chiropractors in the Sunshine State, highlighting key compliance strategies and opportunities for professional growth.

Understanding CE Requirements in Florida

In Florida, chiropractors are required to complete a specific number of continuing education hours to maintain their licenses. This requirement is designed to ensure that chiropractic professionals stay up-to-date with the latest clinical practices and healthcare trends to provide the best possible care to their patients.

  • Mandatory CE Credits: Florida chiropractors must complete 40 hours of CE every two years. These credits must cover a variety of subjects, including but not limited to clinical practice, ethics, and risk management.
  • Specialized Courses: Part of the CE requirements includes courses on specific subjects such as laws and rules of the board, risk management, ethics, and record keeping, as well as a course on HIV/AIDS.

Florida Chiropractic Coalition’s Role in CE
