Ohio State Medical Board - CE Renewal Chart and Category I and II Requirements

 

CME Guidance

Effective October 17, 2019, Ohio’s continuing medical education (CME) requirements for physicians  changed. The following information is offered to assist licensees in preparing to meet the new requirements.

  • Physicians with renewal dates of April 1, 2020 and beyond are expected to complete 50 hours of Category 1 CME.

  • Category 2 CME is not being “eliminated.” However, completion of Category 2 CME will not count towards meeting the CME requirements for renewal.


Physicians

• Ohio MDs, DOs, and DPMs will need to complete a total of 50 hours Category 1 CME every two years to be eligible for license renewal. Previously, physicians were required to complete a total of 100 hours, of which 40 needed to be Category 1.

• The amount of continuing education hours a physician may earn providing health care services as a volunteer will be reduced to three hours.
