As a prerequisite for physician assistant registration, practitioners are required to complete continuing medical education.
As of December 2018 Physician Assistant Registration/Renewal will begin the process of renewing biennially (every 2 years).
In order to stagger the roll out of the biennial renewals, all licensed Physician Assistants are being separated out into 2 groups. Licenses ending with an odd number will register for two years in 2019. Licenses ending with an even number will register for one year in 2019 and then register for two years in 2020. Once the roll out is complete, even license numbers will continue to renew in even years, and odd license numbers will renew in odd years.
Please note: There is no increase in the number of continuing medical education credits required prior to renewal as part of the new biennial renewal system. Moving forward physician assistants will need to complete at least 40 credits of continuing medical education every 24 months.
Documentation of CE courses shall be made available to the Board upon request, but should not be submitted with the registration. Random audits will be made to assure compliance.
If you have any questions regarding continuing education requirements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
