The end of the year is coming, and with it, licensure requirements are coming due.

We can help you fulfill your annually required CME.

Most states require 20 to 40 hours a year of approved CME annually to maintain licensure.  AMA PRA Category 1(™) credits are the route to this. That part is easy.  Now there is a host of individual state-required CME topics.

In 2006, Florida became the first state legislature to mandate that physician CME had to include one hour a year on Domestic Violence Prevention.  This has opened the floodgates to legislative involvement in CME for clinical professionals ranging from physicians to dental hygienists. Almost every state now has specific topical requirements for annual CME.  We have no idea where this ends. 

In the last year, some states have begun mandating opioid or pain management CME.  Physician assistants are becoming responsible for professionalism CME. Many states now require, in addition to topical CME such as domestic violence prevention or infection control, CME hours designated as Stroke Center (Joint Commission) or Trauma Center (ACS) hours. 

Most states that are including Stroke Center and Trauma Center CME requirements have an initial first year credit amount, then a smaller amount each year, or in some cases over three year windows.

With Med-Challenger, you can produce CME certificate PDFs, printable for submission to state or licensure boards or for Stroke Center and Trauma Center applications.
