State-Mandated CME Content Detail

Each physician licensed to practice in Maine must complete a minimum of 40
Category 1 CME credit hours during each two-year licensing period. The CME
requirement will be prorated for the first licensure period. All licensees need
to complete 3 hours of AMA category 1 CME on opioid prescribing every 2 years.
Three hours of any Category 1 AMA approved program on the prescribing of opioids
will suffice. The CME must be taken since your last renewal in order to be
counted towards this requirement. Buprenorphine Waiver Training as described by
the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) may be
counted toward meeting the requirement of this law as long as the training is
approved Category 1 Continuing Medical Education by the American Medical
Association Council on Medical Education (AMA).
