The Board of Medicine is required by law to identify prescribers who must complete 2 hours of continuing education (CE) in pain management, proper prescribing of controlled substances, and the diagnosis and management of addiction. The Board is requiring all prescribers licensed by the Board of Medicine to obtain 2 hours of Type 1 (CAT I) CE in the 24 months prior to your next biennial renewal. It is the responsibility of the licensee to find and complete the CE activities. Here are helpful links to free, online Category I CME.
