*Continuing Education:

Since January of 2021, we have asked our licensees to use an electronic continuing education tracker, CE Broker, to track their annual hours of continuing education. Because the board suspended the requirement for CE/CME for 2020, no one will be audited for that year.  However, any CE/CME that you did take during 2020 that occurs in a 12 month period before your 2021 renewal may be counted toward the 2021 requirement.  As stated in prior email blasts, we have been phasing in the requirements for most practitioners 2 hours/month when their renewal is due for 2021.

Effective January 2022, almost all LSBME licensees (except Acupuncture and Physician Assistant categories) are required to use CE Broker to track their CME/CE. For their 2022 renewal, licensees are expected to fulfill their CME/CE requirements in full and these hours must be documented in a CE Broker transcript. No one will be allowed to renew if the CE tracking system does not show the proper number of credits for renewal.  The only licensees exempted from this are those Respiratory Therapists or Genetic counselors who work exclusively for the federal government or those Occupational Therapists who work exclusively for the state government.  Those individuals must supply the LSBME licensing department with a letter from their employer verifying the dates of their employment, and a form (found below) verifying your exclusive employment. The letter and the form can be sent to licensing@lsbme.la.gov at any time, but no later than 30 days before the renewal date.
