Wyoming makes CME mandatory
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Oct. 11, 2004
As of Jan. 1, 2007, physicians in Wyoming will have to complete 60 hours of continuing medical education in order to obtain or renew a medical license.
The new requirement established by the Wyoming Board of Medicine also allows for random audits of active license holders to see if they are in compliance. No CME will be required of those maintaining an inactive license.
Some 54 state medical and osteopathic boards require continuing medical education for license registration.
