    Alaska State Medical Board CME Requirements

    Annual State CME Requirements for Alaska

    • 50 total hours every 2 years
    • 50 Credits approved by the AMA or AOA

    Physicians must complete an average of 25 hours of continuing medical education (CME) during each year of the previous licensing period. Licenses are renewed biennially, so physicians must have earned 50 credit hours during the concluding licensing period in order to qualify for renewal.

    Courses must be Category 1 of AMA-approved education, or Category 1 or 2 of AOA-approved education.

    There is a new legislative requirement for a minimum of two hours of education in pain management and opioid use and addiction (unless you do not hold a valid DEA registration).

    For license renewals, at least two of the total hours of CME that are required to qualify for renewal must be specific to pain management and opioid use and addiction.

    Courses must be category 1 of AMA-approved education, or Category 1 or 2 of AOA-approved education.

    For a podiatrist, it may instead be earned in a continuing medical education program from a provider that is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME).

    To fully document compliance with the opioid education requirement, the title/description of the program on your Certificate of Completion should specifically reference all three areas of the required subject matter: pain management, opioid use, addiction.

    Physician assistants must maintain a current active NCCPA certification to qualify for renewal.
