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. Colorado 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 all 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 Colorado MD and DO physicians, you’ll need to fulfill the following:
“Effective March 30, 2020, licensees must complete at least two hours of training per licensing cycle related to best practices for opioid prescribing, recognition of substance use disorders, referral of patients with substance use disorders for treatment, and use of the Electronic Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. Licensees who maintain a national board certification that requires equivalent substance use prevention training, or attests to the Board that the health care provider does not prescribe opioids are exempted.” – FSMB
