During the 2016 Connecticut General Assembly, two new courses were mandated for physicians in order to renew their medical license: Mental Health Conditions Common to Veterans (falls under Behavioral Health) and Prescribing Controlled Substances and Pain Management (falls under Risk Management). Even though these two new courses can be substituted for already existing requirements, ALL PHYSICIANS MUST TAKE A ONE-HOUR COURSE IN PRESCRIBING CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES AND PAIN MANAGEMENT AND A TWO-HOUR COURSE IN MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS COMMON TO VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS. 

Six Mandated CME Courses for Medical License Renewal

On June 4, 2016, FCMA presented its Mandatory CME Training for Connecticut Medical License Renewal Program where physicians were able to fulfill all six mandated license renewal topics during this session.  The topics presented were as follows:

  • Mental Health Conditions Common to Veterans (newly mandated, falls under Behavioral Health)
  • Prescribing Controlled Substances and Pain Management (newly mandated, falls under Risk Management)
  • Sexual Assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Infectious Diseases (including AIDS and HIV)
