The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure Requirements

CE: 60 hours of CME every three years, with 30 hours being certified in AMA Category 1 by an organization accredited by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education.  Of the remaining 30 hours, a minimum of two hours of the required CME must be acquired in HIV/AIDS courses approved by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services pursuant to 902 KAR 21:60 every ten year period. 1 hour of Domestive Violense is required for every licensee. These courses must be state approved. 

The 1996 Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation, which in part requires primary care physicians to complete an approved three-hour training course in domestic violence. Primary care physicians, who are granted licensure after July 1, 1996, are required to successfully complete the course within three years of the date of initial licensure. It should be noted that the three-hour domestic violence requirement may be applied toward the total sixty hour CME required for the current cycle. Primary care includes: Family/General Practice, General Pediatrics, General Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, General Obstetrics and Gynecology, Preventive Medicine/Public Health.
 
Licenses must be renewed every three years.
