New Jersey MD and DO physicians, you can fulfill your state CME requirements today by watching the GIBLIB videos listed here.
Back to all states

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. New Jersey 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 New Jersey MD and DO physicians,  you’ll need to fulfill the following:

“100 hours every 2 years; 40 must be Category I; 60 hours can be Category II; 6 hours Cultural competence (for physicians licensed prior to 3/2/2005, the cultural competence hours are in addition to 100 hour requirement). Two (2) of the required Category 1 Credits must be in End-of-Life-Care. For 2019 renewals and every renewal thereafter, one (1) of the required Category 1 Credits needs to be in topics concerning prescription opioid drugs, including responsible prescribing practices, alternatives to opioids for managing and treating pain, and the risks and signs of opioid abuse, addiction and diversion. For newly licensed physicians, the Board requires attendance at an orientation program; no CME credit." – FSMB
