  • State CME Requirements
  • 3/5ths or 60% of State Boards of Podiatry Now Allow ALL CME Credit to be Earned Online

    There are now 30 states, three-fifths or 60% of all states that impose NO LIMITATIONS on how many CME credits can be earned online by podiatrist. The most recent survey that PRESENT performed in 2017 show you below how much the CME world has changed since we first surveyed the State Boards of Podiatry in 2004, when there were only two states that allowed ALL CME credits to be earned online. There are currently 2 states that do not currently require podiatrists to earn ANY CME - Connecticut and Montana.

    As the largest provider of online education for the podiatry profession, you can imagine that we are asked this question quite often. In order to provide the best service for our loyal members, we have updated the survey and display the results for you below.

    Find your state in the table below to see how many CME Credits your State requires, when your next renewal date is, and how many you can earn online (revised: October 26, 2017):
