Florida Governor Crist signs Palmer-sponsored bill

On June 28, Florida Governor Charlie Crist signed a bill originally introduced by Palmer College, that will bring about positive opportunities for the chiropractic profession and the Florida Campus. This new legislation will provide doctors of chiropractic the opportunity to practice on the campus of an accredited college of chiropractic in Florida as part of their teaching responsibilities without a Florida license, provided they have an active and current license to practice in another state.

Previously, in order to teach at the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics on the Florida Campus, a doctor had to be licensed in Florida. With this new law, Palmer now has significantly more opportunities to recruit additional talented and experienced faculty members to the Florida Campus. A second part of the bill, which was suggested by the Florida Chiropractic Association, allows students to sit for licensure in Florida prior to graduation.
