Medical Examining Board approves opioid CME requirement for 2020-2021 cycle

A requirement for Wisconsin-licensed physicians to take at least two credits of continuing medical education (CME) coursework related to opioid prescribing will continue for the 2020-21 CME cycle. The State of Wisconsin’s Medical Examining Board at its monthly meeting in Madison on Wednesday officially extended the requirement by giving final approval to an administrative rule change.

The requirement is similar to the one currently in place for physicians, although the CME subject matter for 2020-21 is a bit broader. The MEB will still approve courses that will qualify to fulfill the specific subject-matter credit, with a link to a list of approved courses placed on the MEB’s website.
