New CME Requirement for PAs/AAs and Supervising Physicians
Effective Jan. 1, 2025, Physician Assistants/Anesthesiologist Assistants and Supervising Physicians entering new supervised practices and Collaborating Physicians entering new collaboration agreements with CRNPs and CNMs will be required to obtain continuing medical education regarding the rules and statutes governing supervised practice in Alabama not more than 48 months prior to January 1, 2025 or within twelve months of a new registration or collaborative agreement.
However, for initial compliance, the Board has extended the look-back period to 60 months prior to January 1, 2025. Therefore, anyone completing the course within 60 months prior to January 1, 2025, will be deemed compliant with the initial education requirement. The Board is working toward providing an online course; however, at this time, the approved course is live only. Please see this link for information about the courses offered on Apr. 12 and Nov. 22, 2024.
