Please note that an application fee only extends an initial license to the next renewal date. Initial licenses do vary in duration. It is the responsibility of all licensees to renew their license before expiration. Failure to renew shall result in automatic forfeiture or suspension of the license by statute. Licenses which have forfeited are not automatically entitled to renew.

I am applying for licensure in Colorado. They require doctors complete a profile which includes identification of all medical licenses, including dates of issue, expiration and renewal. I do not have this information. What should I do?

CO has instituted a new medical profiling act that requires doctors to complete a profile which includes identification of all their medical licenses including dates of issue, expiration and renewal. The South Dakota Board may NOT be able to provide exact dates for an expired South Dakota license, especially if the expiration preceded the Board’s electronic database.  The CO State Board has informed the South Dakota Board that physicians are allowed to provide their best estimate for the expiration by using four digits, do NOT use the word "unknown".  For further questions regarding this situation, please contact our office via SDBMOE@state.sd.us or fax to (605) 367-7786; include copies of any and all South Dakota documentation that you have available in order to assist a response.
