Continuing Medical Education Requirement

On November 10, 2016, emergency rules went into effect that revise Wisconsin Administrative Code Chapter Med 13 to provide that two of the required 30 hours of CME for the current biennium (1/1/2016 - 12/31/2017) and the following biennium (1/1/2018 - 12/31/2019must be related to the opioid prescribing guideline issued by the Board. 

According to the rule, physicians who do not hold a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration number to prescribe controlled substances are exempt from the requirement.

A list of Board approved CME providers for this requirement can be located here: List of Approved CME Providers
