For the 2023 renewal, each license holder will be required to take two of the required 30 hours related to prescribing opioids and other controlled substances. These courses must be AMA or AOA Category 1, but no longer require specific approval from the Medical Examining Board. Physicians who do not hold a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration number to prescribe controlled substances are exempted under the rules.
Renewal deadline: 10/31/2023
The Medical Examining Board Partners with CE Broker
At this time, it is not required that licensees register for an account but the board is encouraging licensees utilize this as a tool to assist in the tracking of the required continuing education. This will also be the primary tool that the Board will use to administer the CME audit early in 2024. The Board has provided you with a free Basic Account, so you'll have their helpful CE tracking tools right at your fingertips.
Within the free Basic Account, you will have access to your Course History and CE Compliance Status. This lists all of the courses which have been reported thus far and indicates whether or not you have satisfied your renewal requirements. From here, you may easily find and report any CE that might be missing. CE Broker is 100% free to use and you will never have to pay to access all of the necessary tools to renew your license!
Comprehensive Course Search
One of the best free tools CE Broker provides is the Course Search. You can easily find every course needed to successfully complete your license renewal, with just a few clicks! After you are finished with each course, educational providers will report the credits directly into CE Broker for you - but you should always retain a copy of the certificates for your records. To find courses, visit courses.cebroker.com/search/wi and select your profession.
