Each state has its own state CME requirements to fulfill – some depend on the amount of CME you earn, others center more on your educational hours. It can be hard to keep track. Georgia requires a lot of CME credits and mandates that you split some of your credits between designated subjects. And trying to keep track of all these requirements may be tedious for you.

For your convenience, we at GIBLIB have curated your state CME required topics and credits in one blog. Now, you can fulfill some of your CME needs in one place. Review your requirements and watch videos linked below that will fulfill them. Use our easy-to-access resource to make fulfilling your requirements less of a chore.

For both Georgia MD and DO physicians,  you’ll need to fulfill the following:

  • “40 hours every 2 years; 25% must be Category 1. Effective January 1, 2018, each licensee with DEA registration and prescribes controlled substances must complete before their next renewal 3 hours of Category 1 CME on responsible opioid prescribing. The Board may accept certification or recertification by a member of ABMS, the AOA or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in lieu of compliance with CME requirements during the cycle in which the certification or recertification is granted. Effective January 1, 2022, physicians are required to participate in a one-time education and training, for a minimum of 2 hours, regarding sexual misconduct, sexual boundaries, and the impacts and trauma of implicit bias.” – FSMB
