Re: How many CME credits does my state allow me to earn online ?

Just wanted to update the chart.  Pennsylvania now requires 50 CME credits for every 2 years license renewal.

Re: How many CME credits does my state allow me to earn online ?

     Incredible statistics!  We have a grand average of 21.8 c.m.e. units per year required by the 50 states (& DC/PR).  We have our low requirement of "0" in Montana and then our four high requirement states of NJ, OH, MI, & IL each needing 50 per year.  I would think that this tremendous variation in cme requirements would be cause for concern by anyone who looked at it, whether they be politicians, bureaucrats from insurance companies, educators, or our own patients.  Shouldn't these laws be more uniform?  Are the c.e.u. requirements for other health professions as wildly varied as our own?   I believe we'd have more credibility and legitimacy if these requirements were A BIT more uniform.  Comments?   Vincent

I noticed that the state of Michigan is listed as a state that allows for 100% CME online. According to the "Continuing Education Requirements For Michigan Podiatrists" a podiatrist renewing their license must have no less than 75 hours of the required 150 as either category 1 (designated program) or 6 (post graduate education). A maximum of 30 hours can be used in a media program (within category 5)

Also, according to section 1360.70 Continuing Education of the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules: Administrative Code in the state of Illinois, there is no mention of being able to obtain CME online, only 3 hours is given if you are the presentor (1 for the actual presentation and 2 for the preparation- I'm willing to do a presentation, any takers?)

I hope that this information will be benefical to someone. Best regards.
