Section 16. Renewal; Restoration; Military Service

(a) The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule of the Department.

(b) The Board shall establish continuing education requirements for the renewal of a license.

(c) A person who has permitted his or her license to expire or who has had his or her license on inactive status may have his or her license restored by:

(2) Filing proof acceptable to the Department of his or her fitness to have his or her license restored including, but not limited to, sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department; and

(3) Paying the required restoration fee. If the person has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Board shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, his or her fitness to resume active status and may require the person to complete a period of evaluated clinical experience and may require successful completion of an examination.

(1) In federal service on active duty within the armed forces of the United States or with the State militia called into service or training; or

(2) In training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into military service may have his or her license renewed or restored without paying a lapsed renewal fee if, within two years after termination from the service, training or education except under conditions other than honorable, he or she furnished the Department with satisfactory evidence that he or she has been so engaged and that his or her service, training or education has been terminated.
