State Educational Requirements for Medical Licensing

States differ in their licensing requirements. Some states require physicians earn CME credits, while others do not. Even among the states that demand documentation of CME, the amount per year varies, as does the type.

For example, some states may require CME credits in specific educational categories such as domestic violence, HIV infection, or quality assurance, whereas others require no specifics.

The American Medical Association publishes annually State Medical Licensure Requirements and Statistics, a great resource that provides up-to-date information on licensure requirements across all US states and jurisdictions.
